|Background on Philippe Certiat,
of Ecole Superieure d'Ingenieur de Marseille, specializing in
Thermo-Dynamics and of the Institut Francais du Froid Industriel
and du Genie Climatique, specialising in refrigeration. While
studying he taught Fluid dynamics ( terminale F9 ), and did data-processing
and operational audits for Petrofina.
his career began in an aerospace company of 400 employees in the
HVACR department. His strong technical background soon led him
to head refrigeration projects within the company. He oversaw
all phases of technical interface, from the inception/design of
the project, the manufacturing, quality control and assurance
and interface with other managers of the project as well as with
international suppliers (France, the USA, Japan, Sweden). Mr.
Certiat also participated in refrigeration installations within
the company while at the same time developing a screw compressor,
a spiral compressor, and software simulating the refrigeration
cycle. He also studied new technologies such as (high temperatures,
cycle cascade, fuel condensers) and researched substitutes for
freon, following the new environmental protection regulations
regarding the ozone layer. Three years later Philippe Certiat
chose to continue his career in mass distribution all the while
helping to build a company that specialises in refrigeration.
This expertise leads him to form his own company, Enthalpie, in
Philippe Certiat's spirit of teamwork, management and interface
skills, coupled with his technical background has put Enthalpie
on the world map of refrigeration, a company whose image is synonymous
with quality. It's sales figures are growing and the company is
in full expansion.
