A natural fit – BOCK joins the Danfoss family
BOCK has entered a new chapter in its over 90-year history today, as it looks to continue its growth journey as part of the global Danfoss family.
BOCK’s best-in-class technology is a natural fit for Danfoss’ extensive existing cooling and heating portfolio, and unifying these two brands will accelerate energy efficiency and decarbonization.
As part of the Danfoss Commercial Compressors division, BOCK will become a distinct product brand name for semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors, with BOCK’s team of 400 dedicated experts and specialists officially joining their new colleagues as of 1 March.
BOCK’s renowned CO2 and low-GWP compressors and condensing units expand Danfoss’ position as a full-service provider for greener cooling and heating solutions from products and solutions to components and support. All backed by a global presence. The brands’ shared commitment to innovation, expertise, and support will help fast-track decarbonized cooling and heating worldwide.
“When there’s more than one road to decarbonization, there’s no such thing as too many solutions. By adding BOCK’s world-leading technology to Danfoss’ extensive portfolio of compressors, valves, controls, heat exchangers, and sensors, we are simply consolidating our position as the leading destination for greener cooling and heating solutions. This is an exciting day for both brands. By combining our respective expertise, we will help accelerate energy efficiency and the global transition to natural and low-GWP refrigerants,” says Kristian Strand, President, Danfoss Commercial Compressors.
With a combined history of almost 200 years, a pre-existing close partnership, and compatible values, BOCK and Danfoss are focused on providing seamless business continuity and increased options for customers of both brands.
“This is a proud moment in BOCK’s history, as we look to continue our growth journey as part of the Danfoss family. Danfoss’ global presence will open new business opportunities for BOCK, and together, we have high hopes for the future. Innovation will continue to be central to our work, as we look to elevate more sustainable cooling and heating worldwide,” says Dr Marcus Albrecht, CEO, BOCK.
The integration of BOCK under Danfoss’ banner will be celebrated today at all BOCK’s locations. This will mark the beginning of a wide-ranging transition program to comprehensively introduce BOCK employees to the world of Danfoss, including online training, Q&As, and internal communication.
