We are excited to expand our manufacturing operations in Serbia to serve our key customers in Europe and beyond,” said Eric McGinnis, President, Climate Solutions at Modine. “The market for heat pumps in Europe is poised for growth over the long term to achieve climate targets. We want our manufacturing centers near our key customers to provide best-in-class heat transfer technology.

Modine has decades of experience manufacturing high-quality heat transfer coils for HVAC contractors, integrators, distributors and original equipment manufacturers.
