By July 1st, 1981 a Sole Agency and Distribution contract for Germany and Austria was signed with Maneurop SA, a French Manufacturer of hermetic compressors and condensing units.

After more than 15 years of successful business for Maneurop SA, in which we succeeded to become Leader in hermetic compressors, in the range of 1,5 to 15 hp, Danfoss, Nordborg, as the new owner of Maneurop, took over these sales activities.
