Italian machinery maker Saip has recently installed two polyurethane sandwich panel lines in North America, according to the company's commercial manager, Luca Ceresa.
Saip installs two insulation lines in the US
Ceresa was talking on the fringes of the CPI meeting in Orlando. He declined to name the clients, but said one line was installed in Michigan, and the other in South Carolina.
'I think these are some of the most advanced lines in the US,' he said. 'There are some new solutions that are being used for the first time.'
He said that the business for cold chain and commercial refrigeration systems in the US is good. 'People are positive,' he said. 'The market is growing year after year. This is our best year ever, thanks to support from our local agents.'
Rigid foam machines and fixtures in the cold chain market are advanced designs, he said. 'This is because people want tailor made solutions, we are quite flexible about this,' he said.
The US is a promising market, there is a big need for new technology, he added.
