Thermal management technology provider, Modine, has opened a second facility in Sremska, Serbia, to manufacture coils for commercial and residential heat pump applications.

Serbian Prime Minister-designate Milos Vučević and United States Ambassador to Serbia Christopher Hill were among the dignitaries who attended the grand opening ceremony.

Modine president & CEO, Neil Brinker, said the new production facility underscores Modine's commitment to investing in technologies that reduce energy consumption and lower harmful emissions, like heat pumps.

“Producing high-quality coils for customers working to achieve sustainability objectives is one way we're living our purpose of engineering a cleaner, healthier world,” he said.

The president of Climate Solutions at Modine, Eric McGinnis, said the company is expanding its manufacturing operations in Serbia to serve key customers in Europe and beyond.

"The market for heat pumps in Europe is poised for growth over the long term to achieve climate targets. We want our manufacturing centres near our key customers to provide best-in-class heat transfer technology,” McGinnis said.

Modine has decades of experience manufacturing high-quality heat transfer coils for HVAC contractors, integrators, distributors and original equipment manufacturers.

Modine opened its first facility in Serbia in 2014 to manufacture heat transfer coils used primarily in commercial refrigeration and HVAC applications.

That facility was expanded in 2019 to support growing demand. The new facility is more than 18,000 m2 (197,000 ft2) and located next to the existing plant.

The vice president, Heat Transfer Products at Modine, Mike Postma, said the company’s expanded footprint will allow Modine to efficiently serve the current and future needs of OEM partners as well as explore additional growth opportunities.
