BRISTOL, Va. — Bristol Compressors International Inc., a leading global producer of compressors for use in air conditioning, heat pump, and refrigeration systems, announced that it has named Ed Gniewek as CEO.

Gniewek most recently served as president of EFP Corp., a producer of engineered products and packaging for the medical, pharmaceutical, food, consumer, and building markets.
