At Fives, we are proud of our standing as a technological leader in the cryogenics market. We specialize in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of brazed heat exchangers, cold boxes, core-in-drums and cryogenic Cryomec® centrifugal and reciprocating pumps.
Our cutting-edge, high-performance and complete product portfolio is specially developed for the gas production and processing industry and have a wide range of applications. These include air separation, distribution, natural gas processing, LNG, petrochemicals and hydrogen.
We trace our heat exchanger and cryogenic Cryomec® pump businesses to the Trane (France) and Cryomec (Switzerland) companies in 1959 and 1977, respectively. When the Fives Group acquired them in the late 1990s, Fives Cryo and Fives Cryomec AG became the world leader in cryogenics technology for the gas production and processing industries.
We expanded to China in 2009 with the creation of Fives Cryo Suzhou. In 2016, we established Fives Cryo Inc. in the US, with an engineering and sales office in Houston and a service center in Cleveland Ohio. The companies, all united under the Fives name since 2014, offer heat exchangers and cryogenic Cryomec® pumps via the Energy | Cryogenics business line. Our primary service mission is to support our clients’ installed base, wherever they are located.
Fives cryogenic activity is strengthened by over 60 years of experience with the world's largest engineering and gas manufacturing groups.
