Formerly known as Danfoss Compressors, Secop is one of the founding fathers of modern compressor technology with an experience that goes back to the beginning of the 1950s. Secop compressors continue to be the only original compressors based on the worldwide engineering legacy of the former Danfoss Compressors. In 1956, the production facility and headquarters were founded in Flensburg, Germany. Our commitment to global sustainable refrigeration is clear, and we strive to make a difference wherever we can. We have already made a difference in the 1990s as a pioneer in developing compressors working with hydrocarbons (R290 and R600a) and variable speed. For more than 60 years, Secop has set the standard whenever environmental conditions presented a challenge. As Danfoss Compressors, we were the first to introduce compressors dedicated to regions with tropical conditions. As Secop, we continue to keep this focus by delivering outstanding solutions for harsh environment with high ambient temperatures and fluctuating voltages.
This standards-setting objective has endured to this day. The only difference now is the name, Secop, which is a result of the divestment of Danfoss Compressors to the AURELIUS Group in 2010. It means that Secop compressors continue to be the only original compressors based on the worldwide engineering legacy of the former Danfoss Compressors.
Secop continues to be an independent major brand in the business.
The book "Compressors Business - An Industrial Heritage" tells Danfoss Compressors´ history from 1950 - 2008 and is available for download in three languages.
