Founded as Fraschini Giuseppe Officina Meccanica (only in 1975 did its name change to the actual one) Frascold has travelled the long path of innovation, building its reputation and its success by means of an high ability in constantly improving products and technologies, developing at the same time relations with its customers.
During all this time, Frascold has manufactured several types of compressors for applications in refrigeration and air conditioning.
The range is one of the largest in the world including semi-hermetic reciprocating and screw compressors covering a range of capacities up to 1400 kW characterized by their sturdiness, reliability, high performance and flexibility of application.
Furthermore Frascold offers new solutions to reduce its impact on the environment: with inverter drives, high pressure trans-critical and subcritical CO2 compressors, ATEX product for HC, open screw compressors for NH3 and optimized solutions for different refrigerants
Since 1998, manufacturing activities are based in the new industrial facility in Rescaldina. This facility, built for a production capacity of 100.000 reciprocating compressors per year, is equipped with machines integrated with an high level of automation.
In this facility Frascold has invested several millions euro to realize the new production lines for semi-hermetic screw compressors and built an advance R&D laboratory to develop products and technologies for future applications.
The company is busy with the development of advanced products for applications with natural refrigerants like CO2, NH3 and HC, for chemical refrigerants with low GWP level, like HFO and for optimization of compressors for traditional HFC refrigerants.
Another branch of development is the integration of electronic products with advanced protection and diagnostic functions and implementing communication devices for system integration.
Frascold has a consolidated presence in the European markets with a detailed network of partners in all countries and, operating in close collaboration with them, is one of the leaders in this industrial sector.
Now it is developing its worldwide network, which already includes 140 partners, to guarantee product supply and a professional and quick customer service in every country.
