CAREL is one of the world leaders in control solutions for air-conditioning, refrigeration and heating, and systems for humidification and evaporative cooling.
Our products are designed to bring energy savings and reduce the environmental impact of machinery and systems. Our solutions are used in commercial, industrial and residential applications.
Our mission of high efficiency solutions summarizes the model that CAREL has adopted, both the starting point and the final objective that enclose the entire process, from conception to production and marketing of our systems As an innovative consultant and technological partner, CAREL anticipates market requirements, proposing energy efficient solutions that guarantee the highest performance.
Our responsibility towards our customers goes well beyond the value of our sales. The products we develop are in fact components that account for approximately 2 to 10% of the value of our customers' finished products, depending on the application. Moreover, being components that are difficult to source elsewhere, we have adopted a disaster recovery system that involves at least two production sites for the majority of our products. This means we can guarantee the supply of our components even in extreme situations.
