Danfoss, an engineering group providing solutions to increase machine productivity, reduce emissions, lower energy consumption and enable electrification, has finalised the acquisition of BOCK GmbH to firm up its position in Africa as a preferred provider of energy-efficient solutions

“BOCK is a global leader with over 90 years’ experience in developing compressors, and has an impressive reputation for quality, climate-friendly technology," commented Roy Naidoo, sales director sub-Saharan Africa for Danfoss Climate Solutions. "The addition of BOCK’s product portfolio to our existing range of compressors has given Danfoss the opportunity to tap into new markets and grow our reach within Africa.”

As of 1 March 2024, the sales of BOCK Compressors to resellers, contractors and end users were transitioned to distribution partners, while certain key OEM customers will continue to be supported directly. BOCK’s products are available via trusted partners such as Refrimate, Metraclark and Ref Compressor Spares.

With best-in-class CO2 and low-GWP semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors and condensing units, the new BOCK additions to the Danfoss offering solutions will help organisations worldwide to further accelerate energy efficiency and decarbonisation.

“The implementation of innovative technologies for greener cooling and heating will assist Africa in its transition towards more sustainable practices, where we would then, in turn, contribute to global efforts to combat climate change,” Naidoo continued.

Naeem Fakir, sales driver, sub-Saharan Africa for BOCK, added, “We believe that the new distribution partnerships will pave the way for significant growth opportunities within Africa and ensure a smooth transition for our local clients. Customers can confidently source BOCK products from these trusted partners and remain assured that the dedicated team at Danfoss will continue to be a reliable point of contact for any assistance.”
