OUR VISION: Design and produce state of the art refrigeration, air-conditioning and HVAC systems for the marine business, focusing on quality and reliability.

Veco’s experience in marine refrigeration and air-conditioning systems, together with quality, flexibility and efficiency, makes their solutions the best available on the market.

Our FRIGOBOAT brand covers a wide range of marine refrigeration systems. From small DC to larger AC systems for cold cells, standard or fully customed stainless steel fridges, freezers and wine coolers.

With the CLIMMA brand, Veco manufactures marine air-conditioning systems, from small self-contained to centralized units, from fancoils and Air Handling units to boilers and air extractors.

The company is based in Giussano, Italy. Our offices and warehouse are located within an area of 5000 sqm with a state-of-the-art test room, laser cutting machines and automatic mechanical systems. Veco products are a perfect representation of Made in Italy.

Veco relies on a globally distributed sale and service network, for satisfying any type of request. Nowadays, our systems are installed by widely recognized shipyards, all over the world, who have chosen to work with Veco to design their refrigeration and air-conditioning systems on-board their yachts.

Our history


Success comes from responding to market demands.

This concept has been Veco’s philosophy since the very beginning, when Franco Formenti studied an innovative refrigeration system for a sailor friend, standardizing this solution for mass production with the company ‘3F of F.Formenti’.


The brand Frigoboat was born, and shortly after, it became the company’s name. Carlo, Franco’s son and current CEO, joins the company.


Frigoboat product range evolves in a wide selection of sophisticated products. Together with Carlo, the Climma brand starts its journey, and the company begins to produce marine air conditioning systems.


The company becomes Veco S.p.A.


Nowadays, at the third generation, celebrating our 50th birthday, the company remains a family ran business, with the same values, but with a new concept of growing  and evolving, creating innovative products and state of the art solutions.



In 1996 Veco obtained the DNV Quality Certification, therefore Veco is now fully compliant with UNI EN ISO 9001: 2015 quality management standard.
