Marek Zgliczynski, Embraco
Job Title: Manager of Commercial Refrigeration Product Engineering, Embraco
Key Accomplishment: Helping Embraco make hydrocarbon compressors a success worldwide
Global compressor maker Embraco has been a leading manufacturer of hydrocarbon compressors in Europe, with more than one million installed light commercial units and tens of millions of installed household units.
Asia is its second largest market and North America its third. But at the ATMOsphere America conference in June 2016, Marek Zgliczynski said the efficiency of hydrocarbons, which exceeds that of old and new refrigerants, will trigger a wider rollout in the U.S. To that end, Embraco introduced three new hydrocarbon products last year for the North American market.
Zgliczynski has helped to make hydrocarbon compressors a success for Embraco worldwide. His responsibilities include the development of household and light commercial refrigeration products and related processes, and providing technical assistance to sales to promote the advantages of Embraco products, as well as cooperating with customers in energy-efficient and reliable refrigeration design.
In 2016, Zgliczynski was elected chairman of the IEC/ SC61C subcommittee, an international group working on safety standardization for the refrigeration industry, including raising the charge limit for hydrocarbons.
