The Voice of European Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Contractors

Welcome to AREA, the European association of refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump (RACHP) contractors. Established in 1989, AREA voices the interests of 22 national associations from 19 countries representing 13,000 companies employing 110,000 people and with an annual turnover approaching € 23 billion.
