Carrier conclude deal for TRS

NETHERLANDS – Carrier Transicold have today announced that they have acquired TRS Transportkoeling b.v. (TRS), a Dutch manufacturer and service provider of sustainable transport refrigeration systems designed for trailers, trucks and containers. The company hope that this latest acquisition will help strengthen their offer for energy-efficient and sustainable refrigeration solutions with hydro-electric technology for engineless transport cooling.


Commenting on the acquisition, Victor Calvo, the vice president and general manager for Carrier Transicold Truck Trailer, EMEA, Russia and Asia, stated that “The acquisition of TRS enables Carrier Transicold to enhance its range of engineless transport refrigeration, strengthening our efforts toward achieving a sustainable cold chain.”

Mr Calvo continued, declaring “We have seen the emergence of a number of regulations to limit noise and environmental impact in the recent years. We believe TRS’ innovation and technology will further help our customers meet their efficiency and sustainability goals.”

Since its foundation in 1981, TRS has grown from its roots as a local service organization to become an international producer of sustainable transport refrigeration systems for trucks, containers and controlled atmosphere refrigerated transport. TRS not only design and produce but also service engineless refrigeration systems using hydro-electric technology. The company states that sourcing power from the truck engine helps improve fuel efficiency, while simultaneously lowering noise levels and reducing maintenance.
