Italy-Based Vitrifrigo Will Enter RV Market at RVX (3/9/2019)

Story by RVBusiness

Vitrifrigo, an Italian manufacturer of quality compressors, cooling units and refrigerators, will be exhibiting in Booth No. 1114 at the March 12-14 RVX: The RV Experience next week in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Headquartered in Vallefoglia, Italy, with U.S. operations based in Pompano Beach, Fla., the company will be showcasing several compressor type RV refrigerators for OEMs.  

According to a press release, the company has been in the United States for 15 years and has previously focused on high-end luxury yachts. It has recently launched its RV group under the direction of Doug Schmidt, general manager, and Sales Manager Nelson Pinheiro.

Pinheiro noted that the company will be expanding its manufacturing operations in Georgia in 2019, adding, “We are excited to be launching this new lineup of superior refrigeration products at this landmark event.  

“The Vitrifrigo lineup includes refrigerators, freezers, ice makers and wine coolers. Eventually these products will be available for aftermarket distribution, but the focus right now will be on finding a few RV manufacturers that can appreciate the quality and distinctiveness of these products and want to showcase them in new units they will be introducing at the Dealer Open House events in September,” noted Schmidt. 

Specifically designed for use in moving vehicles, the household-like appliances offer a design and will allow for new floorplans and uses outside the traditional kitchen placements, such as islands or peninsulas or external storage bays, because there is no open flame and no external venting is required. The units do not require one or two days of use to get to acceptable cooling temperatures and can operate up to a 30-degree inclination. The units also operate on 115 VAC, 208 VAC, 12 VDC and 24 VDC. 

Vitrifrigo will be introducing their new DRW180A, double-drawer system where the customer can easily select which drawer is the refrigerator and which one is the freezer. They can also elect to have both drawers as freezers or both as refrigerators – giving them maximum flexibility of use depending on their RVing requirements. They will also show the new Slim 150, a highly efficient refrigerator with freezer compartment in a narrow design to save space in designing new floorplans.
