We are a company that focuses mainly on the development of industrial refrigeration solutions for a large range of food, chemical and petrochemical companies. We design, manufacture, assemble and start-up refrigeration systems for food processing and preservation purposes, according to the highest safety and quality standards. In the field of energy, we supply equipment for the treatment and compression of gas intended for multiple applications in the oil industry.
The company, born as a family project in the hands of Mr. Victorio Modenesi, an Italian industrial pioneer, has been in the market for the last 65 years, without interruption. For this reason, the company is nowadays an unavoidable benchmark for the advice of investment projects in the field of industrial refrigeration and petroleum gas.
In January 2000, the renowned company Howden Compressors Ltd. of GLASGOW (Scotland) appointed us as its exclusive representative and distributor in the Mercosur and neighboring countries, for the commercialization of its famous screw compressors.
In this way, the Howden brand becomes our first choice when it comes to packaged units. This offer is complemented with a line of our own branded heads, manufactured in our plant located in the city of Rafaela. We have the machinery required for machining our blocks and cutting our screws. This also allows us to repair any brand of screw rotors.
Considering that we move in a very sensitive area, due to the interaction with rapidly perishable goods (such as food) and elements able to suffer interruptions in their extraction process (such as the oil industry), in 2001 we founded an independent company called Mercofrío S.A. to meet the demand for after-sales services. This is the enterprise structure we have designed to achieve efficiency in the so demanding work we are committed to every day, that is to say, duly meeting our customers’ demands.
The ideals that define and sustain our organization are the following:
– To devote ourselves to our customers with enthusiasm and professionalism.
– To fulfil our customers’ specific demands with practical, smart and modern ideas.
– To carry out a responsible follow up service on the equipment we deliver, since the first sale to a customer and during the following years.
Please, take a look at our Vision, Mission, Values and Quality policy.
