DENSO has always been a world leader in the field of automotive engine thermal products, systems that today account for about 80% of the company's turnover, and today, with the new Business Unit Refrigerators of Denso Thermal Systems, it expands into the cold chain market, contributing to the improvement of the transport of perishable and special goods.

Refrigeration systems for frozen goods (applications up to -30°C, with fast cool down) and at strictly controlled temperatures (pharmaceutical sector or special goods transport) are produced at the Denso Thermal Systems plant in Poirino (TO) and offered for the European market.

Since 1993, DENSO has been a leader in this sector in Eastern markets, with highly innovative complete refrigeration systems, based on the high quality and reliability of all components, which allow a significant reduction in the total cost of the product throughout its life cycle, and high refrigeration performance with reduced volumes compared to competitors products, thanks to the innovative technologies used.

The Business Unit Refrigerators of Denso Thermal Systems obtained in February 2017 the accreditation of the Italian Ministry of Transport as a manufacturer of refrigeration units for the European market, and will soon be able to operate as an ATP certified testing center, thanks to the modern facilities of the plant in the area of Turin.

The European localization of the production of the refrigeration systems allows the DENSO Refrigerators range to respond quickly and efficiently to the demands of the complex European market, knowing that customers in the refrigeration sector are different from those operating in the automotive sector (OEM, OES and IAM), for this reason the company decided to structure and focus specifically in the sector with a dedicated structure, in order to anticipate the needs of the market to immediately compete with the main competitors, offering specific products born to meet the needs of the final customer.

The reduction of CO2 emissions and more generally the protection of the environment are today a priority for the European Union, for this reason DENSO has long started a specific research and development activity on new refrigeration systems, which allows today to the Refrigerators range to stand out for the high efficiency of components (up to +25%) and for the significant reduction in energy consumption (up to -33%) compared to standard products currently on the market; the research activities applied to the refrigeration sector are shipped in our laboratories, with the aim of having in future years systems that are even more performing and which at the same time allow greater protection of the environment around us.
