The GEA Refrigeration Division manufactures refrigeration systems. These systems are put to use primarily in the food industry (breweries, slaughterhouses), during industrial processes, for sports and relaxation (ice skating rinks) and in air-conditioning systems. The division consists of various types of companies: 3 manufacturing companies, 30 sales offices and 10 contracting companies who produce refrigeration systems from all the components. The Refrigeration Division has purchased Sofon to bring together all the components produced in the division in one catalog. In this way, sales offices can, for example, produce complete quotations with incredible ease and effi ciency. Sofon has been live since February 2009 at GEA Grasso BV – one of the manufacturing companies within the division. Apart from that, GEA Grasso is involved in the worldwide roll-out of Sofon at the 30 sales offices.
