Swep’s recently opened factory in Kechnec, Slovakia, a U.S. $12 million investment, is moving into full production, which will amount to producing approximately 160,000 compact brazed heat exchangers per month in 2007.

New personnel for the factory will continue to be recruited and trained during the year, along with fine-tuning of technical equipment and plant with the help of suppliers, according to the Landskrona, Sweden-based exchanger maker.
