AKG van Gorkum BVBA


The company was founted in 1982 as wholesaler for cooling equipement.

We quickly evolved in producing standard air cooled condensing units for the European Market.

High ambient temperature units with Unidad Hermetica compressors where made for Africa and the Middle East.


Later on units where equiped with the Kirby compressor due to the switch from R12 to R22 refrigerant for important customers such as Schiessl and Frigotherm in Germany


In 1990 we had a devastating fire which resulted in a production stop for 7 months.

During the restart of our company we decided to also produce units with the Maneurop compressor.

For Danfoss Netherlands we build special centrals with the VTZ Maneurop compressors for the Dutch market.


In 1997 York Europe asked us to produce standard condensing units with Bristol compressors and specialized units with Bristol scroll compressors for the milktank cool business in Europe.

After Danfoss took over the Bristol scroll compressor factory , we switched to Copeland scroll compressors.

Our main customers are the Milktank builders all over Europe.
