An all-Italian “American dream”.
From 1926 to 1930 Einstein and Szilárd collaborated on a patent for a new, safer refrigerator with no moving parts to improve home refrigeration technology.
Servel Corporation, founded in 1923 and located in Evansville (Indiana), then began the production of this new model of refrigerator that, over the course of its history, would reach over 2,000,000 American homes.
The next technological step was in the development and production of the gas absorption chiller, which met with great success in the U.S. market.
What do the Evansville-based company, which later became Electrolux Servel, and Robur have in common?
In May 1991 Robur took over Servel's gas cooling division, and the Robur Corporation was born. With this move, the Robur Group acquired gas-fired absorption cooling technology.
A bold step that opened additional markets for Robur to grow and secured future distribution of its products in the North American market.
In 1999, Robur Corporation introduced GAX absorption chillers to Europe. And after 15 years of research and development, Robur Corporation launched the world's first reversible gas absorption heat pump, representing a quantum leap forward for the heating industry.
Today Robur Corporation represents an important commercial branch for the diffusion of the brand's products throughout North, Central and South America.
