Made in Italy Production and Quality

All Frigomar products are designed, produced and assembled in Italy
and cover the key sectors within the nautical environment:

  • AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS
  • REFRIGERATION SYSTEMS
  • ICE MAKERS

The advantage of having direct oversight of all the production phases is that it makes it possible to guarantee flexibility and personalisation with every single product.

This is absolutely vital when operating in a market which is increasingly more oriented towards satisfying the needs and expectations of clients.

The entire production process, which starts with the design, finishes with the packaging and delivery only once the product has undergone a series of tests and trials carried out using certified equipment.
