IAC Vestcold As

IAC Vestcold As is located in Stokke, Norway, in the proximity of Viessmann Refrigeration As sales company. IAC’s operations cover the regions of Vestfold, Telemark and Buskerud in Norway and they are F-gas certified service partner with high focus on the environment. Already 10 years ago the company did their first CO2 installations and today over 95% of their installations are done with CO2 and natural refrigerants. IAC employs 34 refrigeration experts focusing on premium 24/7 customer service.

Jan Harald Eriksen, Managing Director of IAC Vestcold As comments: ”We have long cooperation with Viessmann in refrigeration services and have always felt that we work as one team. Joining our skills together was a natural continuation of our partnership, because there is a strong need for refrigeration technology especially due to the F-gas regulatory changes in Norway and customers request for turnkey solutions from one source. In Viessmann we can grow our service capabilities even further and have a reliable and strategically important partner to be able to fulfill this.”

Two long term cooperation partners join together

IAC Vestcold has been Viessmann’s refrigeration partner in Norway for 20 years and joining their competencies together is a natural continuation of the cooperation.  With the acquisition the Norwegian customers will have full support from the planning stage through to implementation and maintenance of the projects from Viessmann.

Viessmann Refrigeration Systems As provides commercial refrigeration solutions for the Norwegian market including customers in food retail, food services, food and beverage industry and health care.
