Bitzer Acquires ElectraTherm

In 2016, ElectraTherm was acquired by BITZER, the world’s largest independent manufacturer of refrigeration compressors, the centerpiece of our waste heat recovery technology.

With its distributors and manufacturing sites for reciprocating, screw & scroll compressors as well as pressure vessels and now screw expanders, BITZER is represented all over the globe. In 2017, approximately 3,400 employees came together to earn sales approaching $1 Billion.

The combined advantage of ElectraTherm’s engineering along with the value of being supported by such a reputable company allows us to dedicate all our energy to the advancement of our technology in the marketplace. With BITZER’s support, we are able to keep the bigger picture in mind.

After BITZER’s acquisition of ElectraTherm, both headquarters were combined at BITZER’s location in Flowery Branch, GA. Afterwards, a 50,000 square foot manufacturing plant and R&D test center were constructed. This state-of-the-art facility allows for the continued development of enhanced ORC, heat to power technology.

“Developing energy-efficient solutions is one of our main goals – and the waste heat to power market offers tremendous potential. ElectraTherm’s ORC technology enables us to make better use of an abundant, and untapped resource of waste heat. This builds on BITZER’s commitment of responsible climate protection. There are clear synergies in our markets and technologies, and we are eager to combines our efforts to further grow our respective markets.”
– Peter Narreau, President of BITZER North America
