Beijer Ref’s Australian manufacturing operation SCM REF Australia has completed its relocation into a new purpose-built facility at Bankstown, Sydney. The OEM has been set up to service the Australian refrigeration industry, with a focus on natural refrigerants.
As part of the push for sustainability under the combined Beijer Ref umbrella, Kirby and Beijer Ref Australia delivered more than 20 transcritical CO2 systems, over 20 subcritical CO2/low-GWP systems and two ammonia systems in 2020.
Work is now well under way completing the first transcritical CO2 system at the new plant.
“Market acceptance for natural refrigerants in Australia continues to grow year on year”, says Sales Manager Inderpal Saund.
“There is increased confidence from clients in what they will receive and increased confidence in the technicians’ skill during commissioning.
“The breadth of our manufacturing capability lies in the strength of our global supply partnerships and the depth of refrigeration experience within our local sales, engineering and production technicians.”
The manufacturing team led by Head of Manufacturing Paul Campbell will be working closely with the SCM Frigo and SCM REF global partners to further strengthen capability and service the growing demand within the food retail and industrial sectors.
