A 97,000 ft2 (9,000 m2) manufacturing facility in Bangkok, Thailand, will soon be completed for Frigel, a manufacturer of adiabatic process cooling systems. The new $7 million plant, for which construction was begun in 2013, is expected to be fully operational in September 2015. Frigel will transition to the new facility from its existing 10,764 ft2 (1,000 m2) Bangkok plant over the summer.
According to Frigel CEO Duccio Dorin, the sizeable increase in the company’s Thailand manufacturing operation signifies the company’s commitment to the Asia Pacific market.
In addition to the plant in Thailand, Frigel has two manufacturing facilities in Italy, including its corporate headquarters in Scandicci (Florence), and a plant in Brazil, where it also provides sales, engineering, parts and product support. Additional operations that provide sales, engineering, parts and service include the United States, Germany and Australia.
