Joint Expertise in Cryo Technology



MECOTEC has reached an important milestone – we have agreed to buy the COOLANT company and integrate it into the MECOTEC group. COOLANT is an expert in energy-optimized low-temperature systems with its headquarters in Zwickau, Germany. We will combine our mutual know-how in freezing technology and will be able to offer even more innovative solutions in the industrial sector in the future.

With the takeover, MECOTEC is consolidating its technological leadership for special applications in refrigeration. The brand name COOLANT will continue to exist and will be supplemented by the addition „MECOTEC Group.“ The Zwickau production site and its employees, under the leadership of Jan Hüneburg, will be focussing on industrial applications.

„Together with Jan Hüneburg and the entire COOLANT team, we are substantially strengthening our global expertise in cryogenic refrigeration – practically on our doorstep,“ says Enrico Klauer, CEO of MECOTEC. „Due to the increasing global demand in the industrial sector, we needed personnel and technical support and we found it with COOLANT.“

The MECOTEC headquarter in Bitterfeld remains focused on the development and manufacture of electric cryochambers.

„MECOTEC is the world market leader in electric cryochambers and therefore an ideal partner to be able to increasingly use international opportunities in our industry,“ said Jan Hüneburg, CEO of COOLANT and future product development manager. „MECOTEC offers a unique spectrum in the ultra-low temperature range and the greatest possible flexibility for our customers,“ continues Hüneburg.

An example of MECOTEC’s reference in the industrial sector is a multi-million project for cryogenic storage by a world market leader in the pharmaceutical sector. COOLANT gathered its expertise in the development and production of low-temperature modules in the convenience-food-industry.
