(NILES, ILLINOIS – Feb. 6, 2024 – Thermal Care Release) – Piovan Group launches a new strategic division for industrial and process refrigeration, the result of the integration of the businesses operated by Thermal Care and Aquatech.

The Thermal Care brand now expands globally, facilitated by the integration of the Aquatech business which moves forward under the banner of Thermal Care. Company officials say the incorporation of PiovanGroup into the Thermal Care logo not only signifies geographical expansion but also reflects a unified vision for growth and innovation.

With a legacy spanning over half a century, Thermal Care and Aquatech have solidified themselves as prominent players in industrial process cooling markets by providing high‐quality, sustainable equipment and solutions.

Operating primarily out of the USA, near Chicago, Thermal Care has been a leader in the design, manufacturing, sales and service of top‐tier heat‐transfer solutions across various industries – including plastics, food & beverage, and more than fifty other industry segments. Headquartered in Italy, Aquatech has been primarily covering EMEA, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions with design, sales and service of similar products, primarily focused on polymers processing. Thermal Care and Aquatech products manufactured in North America, Europe, Asia and South America will continue to be produced and sold in their respective regions, now under the newly established division. The integration of these business units will provide R&D efficiencies and an expanded portfolio of products, solutions, and services capable of serving a wider range of market sectors.

The new division headed by Lee Sobocinski, current president of Thermal Care Inc., shall operate under the Thermal Care brand and will have consolidated sales of approximately 100 Euro million, globally. The creation of the global Thermal Care brand, coupled with the exchange of the institutional knowledge within PiovanGroup into this emerging division, will empower the new Thermal Care to provide best‐in‐class assistance to our customers, irrespective of their geographical presence, spanning from preliminary sales engagement to post‐sales support.
