Case studies 23 May 2013

Carel is an Italian industrial climate and refrigeration business. Its customers include OEMs and  multinational retailers providing climate controls and equipment for building management. It has manufacturing sites in Italy, China, Brazil and the US. Last year the company generated sales of €160m, roughly 40% per cent of which came from overseas.

This wasn’t only about innovation, or connectivity and data traffic rates. We wanted the reassurance that if we had a problem, anywhere in the world, we’d have the SLA’s and support to solve it. That could only be Vodafone.Serena Ometto, Product Manager, Carel
