A-Gas has purchased German refrigerant company Arthur Friedrichs Kaeltemittel GmbH.
Located near Hamburg, Arthur Friedrichs Kaeltemittel GmbH has operated in the industry for over 60 years; primarily supplying refrigerant to the European automotive market.
“This acquisition will allow us to further strengthen our global OEM automotive presence, where Friedrichs Kaeltemittel has made a considerable impact,” said A-Gas Managing Directory, John Ormerod.
“We will invest in a reclamation plant and create new jobs by doing so. Reclamation will expand as the pressure on supplies of key gases continues and the need to reclaim grows ever more important.”
The A-Gas acquisition is subject to clearance from competition authorities in Germany and Austria. This is the second A-Gas acquisition on the European mainland within the last 12 months, after purchasing Netherlands-based reclamation business BTC in August.
