Less noise, more efficiency. Just what consumers want.

When the time comes to select a new refrigerator, today’s consumers typically focus on two aspects: energy consumption and audible noise. Compact design is a third factor that frequently comes into play. Meanwhile, fridge manufacturers currently face more stringent regulations of the appliance’s form factor and are under constant pressure to reduce costs. Your objective as an engineer: provide compact, energy-efficient, cost-effective drive solutions for refrigerator compressors. Doing so will help your customers differentiate from the competition and better meet the latest consumer needs.
