Responding to increased demand for energy-efficient cooling technology, Danfoss is constructing a new compressor and sensing facility in Apodaca, Mexico. The new expansion, which is expected to be complete by the end of 2024, will produce medium and large scroll compressors, pressure sensors for HVAC/R, and A2L leak detection sensors for residential and commercial air conditioning and refrigeration.
The move is part of the Danfoss ESG (environmental, social, governance) strategy to offer localized production for customers, and also secure supply chain flexibility and security by expanding the global footprint of production.
The facility will start with a capacity for 100,000 compressor units, 1.6 million pressure sensors, and 1 million A2L leak detection sensors.
"We are really proud to launch production in Mexico to increase our support to the market," said Fabio Klein, senior vice president, Scrolls and Reciprocating Compressors, "Our Commercial Compressors unit is a significant growth journey, and this move will take us one step closer."
"It is exciting to get even closer to our American customers and support them helping improve efficiency and safety of their cooling systems with a regionalized supply chain," added Bert Labots, vice president, Sensing Solutions.
Danfoss Commercial Compressors is a leading compressor manufacturer of fixed-speed scrolls, inverter scroll solutions with prequalified drives, reciprocating compressors, condensing units, and centrifugal oil-free Turbocor compressors. These technologies are used in a variety of applications in the air conditioning, refrigeration, and heat pump markets globally.
