DALEVILLE, Va. — Munters is relocating operations from its plant in Buena Vista, Virginia, to a new, expanded facility with twice the manufacturing capacity in Daleville, Virginia.
“The demand for innovative and sustainable data center cooling is expected to remain strong. I am very excited about our new factory that gives us the infrastructure we need to continue to provide world-class, energy-efficient solutions to our customers,” said Stefan Aspman, group vice president and president of the Data Center Technologies business area.
The new 365,000 ft2 (34,000 m2) manufacturing facility is Munters' largest plant in the Americas. The factory will increase the production capacity of cooling and humidity control equipment and add more than 150 jobs.
"The new modern factory will offer the best possible working environment for our employees. It is designed with Munters' net-zero emissions target in mind. The upcoming installation of solar panels on the roof, which is estimated to cover a large part of the daily energy consumption, is an example of this," said Aspman.
Munters' business area Data Center Technologies specializes in advanced climate cooling solutions using a wide range of heat rejection technologies.
