On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Cubigel Compressors, reporters had the honor of visiting the factory of Cubigel brand compressors in Spain.
Sixty years ago, hermetic reciprocating compressors had broad demand prospects in the European light commercial refrigeration market. In 1962, Antoni Forrellad founded Unidad Hermética, the predecessor of the Cubigel brand, with a bold plan to build the largest production plant in western Europe, meeting European and global demand for the core components of refrigeration equipment. He immediately set up a factory in Sabadell City in Barcelona Province, which was put into operation in 1962.
After 10 years of development, to meet increasing demand, Unidad Hermética added a new factory in Sant Quirze del Vallès Barcelona. With this factory that started operation in 1976, the company raised its production to 2 million compressors per year, the highest capacity in western Europe at that time. In 1988, Unidad Hermética joined the Electrolux Compressors Group, with the aim of supplying compressors mainly for the household refrigeration market, while keeping commercial refrigeration compressors as a secondary business. The following year, Cubigel was created as the organization for the global commercial refrigeration activities for Electrolux. Since then, as one of the few independent brands that focuses on the light commercial refrigeration market, Cubigel has been building a leading position in the world.
