In order to satisfy the requests, a new production area of over 5,000 square metres that employs 65 people was inaugurated.
Yesterday was a day of celebration in TEXA: the company reached the goal of 50,000 KONFORT stations of the new Series 700, produced in the last five years
It represents a record result in the industry of equipment for workshops: in fact the charging stations are sophisticated equipment dedicated to servicing and charging vehicle air conditioning systems
. The fact that this solution, 100% made in Italy
, proved to be good was confirmed by the recommendations received by the major automobile manufacturers worldwide.
Along with this historical result, a new area
of over 5,000 square metres
was opened in the plant
, dedicated to the construction of KONFORT stations, with two parallel and completely automated production lines.
Overall, for the production of the KONFORT stations
, 65 employees
are needed daily.
“The 50,000 KONFORT 700 stations produced represent without doubt a great achievement for us – commented Bruno Vianello, President of TEXA
– that confirms our position as a leader in the industry of equipment for mechanical workshops. If we also count the machines that are part of the previous series, KONFORT 600, we go over 70,000 units which represent a true record in an industry like ours. We will certainly not stop here; on the contrary, thanks to the new spaces, we count on establishing a new production record during 2017 also”.
The KONFORT range has 10 models
, able to operate with all of the three refrigerants that are used in the automotive industry today: R134a, R1234yf and the recent R744.
The success of the KONFORT range contributed to a record 2016, concluded by TEXA with a sales volume of approximately 82 million Euro
(73% of which represented by export), with an increase of 29% compared to the previous year
