Systemes LMP, which has over 15 years of experience in the field of refrigeration, first started working with CO2 in its testing facilities in 2008. The company has since installed a number of CO2 transcritical units in Canada for retailer Sobeys. Through the alliance with Hussmann, Systems LMP’s unique transcritical CO2 technology, which has defrost times that respect those of all the case and cooler manufacturers, will now reach a US customer-base.

Systemes LMP is very happy to have Hussmann as a partner. This will allow both companies to achieve new heights in the natural refrigerant market. We feel pretty fortunate to be a part of the Hussmann team. We are very ready to introduce our technology in the American market. The future looks great.” Jeff Gringas, Vice President of Sales at Systemes LMP.

Gaetan Lesage, President, LMP, also expressed enthusiasm about the alliance, saying “As major grocery food retailers look for ways to achieve their environmental goals, there has been increasing interest in CO2 transcritical systems as one of the methods that can help them achieve those goals. Our modules solely use R744 and are the only natural refrigerant-based systems that can be applied across various climates as well. We look forward to bringing this technology as well as our future innovations to Hussmann, which has its own legacy of innovation for over 105 years.

New alliance designed to address growing demand for CO2 commercial refrigeration

The alliance enables Hussmann, to expand its product portfolio, and provide retailers with a climate friendly solution for reducing their carbon footprint. Hussmann already supplies refrigerated and non-refrigerated display merchandisers, specialty display cases, and refrigeration systems, including a low temperature subcritical direct expansion refrigeration solution using CO2.

Michael Higgins, Senior VP, Marketing, Strategic Planning and Business Development said of the alliance, “It is very important that we understand what drives decisions made by our customers when it comes to their refrigeration footprint in the front and back of their retail stores. This alliance with LMP provides us with the opportunity to add one more solution to our refrigeration system portfolio so that we can offer all of our customers the right product based on the goals and objectives established for their business. We look forward to working together to deliver innovative R744 solutions when appropriate for our customers.”
