BITZER continuously works towards our vision to increase our African footprint. African countries have shown an increasing demand for reliable refrigeration and air conditioning technology, thus, since our arrival in South Africa, we’ve increased our reach within Africa to open 2 new offices – Kenya and Senegal.
In November of 2016, we held our opening ceremony in Nairobi, Kenya. The new office, which reports to BITZER Middle East, aims to offer quality service, maintenance, spare parts and training in addition to their imported and cost effective BITZER compressors. This new office also aims to combat counterfeit products flooding in from China.
BITZER Senegal opened its doors in February of this year. The country’s population growth and stable political environment prompted increased demand in the refrigeration and air conditioning market. The new office, which reports to BITZER France, offers training courses and works closely with universities, institutes of technology and vocational schools to mould highly qualified staff members. As in Kenya, BITZER Senegal is also building a certified service centre which offers quality service, maintenance, spare parts and training.
