Leading heating systems manufacturer, the Viessmann Group, has acquired the Norpe Group, a commercial refrigeration technology, based in Porvoo, Finland. A market leader in the Nordic countries and the Baltic states, the company has 450 employees involved in the design and manufacture of refrigeration cabinets, integral cabinets, power packs and lamella products for the food industry.

Already a full-range supplier of heating technology, the acquisition represents an important step for the Viessmann Group in establishing a comprehensive product range for commercial refrigeration solutions. “We want to continue on our path to becoming a full-range supplier of cooling technology so we achieve a similar position to that which we have in the heating sector. The next step is to concentrate on expanding our range of products for the food retail industry,” says Dr Martin Viessmann, owner of the Viessmann Group.

“We are confident that Norpe’s comprehensive and attractive product portfolio fits in well with our strategy.”

Founded in 1953, Norpe has been part of the retail solutions industry for 60 years. Over the past ten years more than 200,000 meters of remote cabinets and 100,000 units of plug-in cabinets have been produced in the Norpe factories in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Poland and Estonia.

“We are excited and honoured to become a part of the Viessmann Group,” says Matti Virtanen, CEO of Norpe. “The highly respected and strong new owner enables us to take the company to the next level.”
