In 2010, the German holding company AURELIUS AG acquired Danfoss Household Compressors from Denmark's Danfoss Group. After this takeover, the Danfoss Household Compressors GmbH's name was changed to Secop GmbH.

On August 1, 2017, Nidec successfully acquired the German compressor manufacturer Secop. The name of the company was changed from Secop to Nidec Global Appliance (GA) Compressors (from 08/2017 to 10/2019).
Antitrust concerns about additional acquisitions by the Nidec Corporation in the refrigeration compressor industry led the company to sell off Secop which transitioned to ESSVP IV in September 2019.
This fund is managed by Orlando Management AG, a private equity firm with a long and successful track record in developing businesses in the industrial sector.
