Race Sobre


After more than three decades operating as a benchmark company in the refrigeration and air conditioning sectors, we decided to take an ambitious step forward and redefine the future of our organization.

Over the last few years, we have been working on an internal reorganization process to improve operational effi-ciency and optimize core areas for the value chain.

This process is now complete and we have increased our competitive profile and are ready to face new challenges.

We redefined the company’s strategic axes and repositioned its core business in order to align the company’s key competencies with the market’s technological evolution.

We are driven by innovation to offer disruptive, sustainable and high added value services to our customers.

Rebranding seemed like a natural step in this process, as we wanted a brand that incorporates this new vision while at the same time maintains the identity and the DNA of a company with a long history of success in the sector.

RACE has emerged, a dynamic and innovative brand that is proud of its history.

We are ambitious and customer satisfaction is our highest priority.



RACE is a new brand with a legacy that fills us with pride and a future that we will build with rigor and daring.
