: German compressor manufacturer Bitzer has opened an office in Senegal to support its presence in West Africa.
The new Bitzer Senegal branch in the capital Dakar is structurally and legally connected to Bitzer France.
The German compressor specialist has been represented by local company sales partner ICE since 2004 and is looking to reinforce that collaboration to expand into various West African markets from its new location. Plans include, for instance, closer cooperation in the area of condensing units.
Bitzer is also working on building a certified service centre in Senegal, so that users have access to other Bitzer services, including spare parts and maintenance. In addition, Bitzer says it is developing special training programmes for local installers and users.
