Richard Plersch sen.


How it all began ...

In 1923 Richard Plersch sen. began with the design and manufacturing of components and plants for the refrigeration industry. He set the standards for future generations by focusing on innovative products and highest quality standards. His son Richard Plersch II continued that tradition and established the global reputation of PLERSCH products.

Today, the company runs by Rupert Plersch in the third generation. As managing director he keeps the family tradition and philosophy alive. In a well-founded entrepreneurial spirit he has established KTI-Plersch Kältetechnik GmbH and in the last 30 years the company has become a leading refrigeration contractor worldwide. KTI-PLERSCH products stand for first-class, cutting edge refrigeration plants of top quality. Since 1986 more than 3,000 cooling plants have been sold and installed worldwide. They testify to the innovative PLERSCH spirit and workmanship.

In addition to the production of turnkey solutions for the Concrete Cooling Industry, the sale of components and spare parts as well as service and consultation are KTI core business areas.
