FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — Bitzer US Inc. earned the Greater Hall County Chamber of Commerce’s Industry of the Year award in the medium category (51-200 employees).

Bitzer moved to Flowery Branch, Ga., northeast of Atlanta, in 2005, where it began compressor production. Although Bitzer recently moved its operations and U.S. headquarters into a new facility, the original plant will be used going forward for pressure vessel operations.

“It’s exciting to be part of a company that grows this quickly and reinvests in its employees, and it’s great to be located in an area that encourages the growth of business,” said Mike Duffy, plant manager.
