Refrigerant Compressors

Pomerantz is involved in this antitrust class action on behalf of indirect purchaser plaintiffs of Hermetic Compressor Products who allege Defendants – including Tecumseh Products Company, Embraco North America, Inc. (a subsidiary of Whirlpool Corp.), Danfoss and Panasonic Corporation – participated in a long-running world-wide conspiracy to fix, the prices of and allocate the market for Hermetic Compressor Products sold in, among other places, the United States. Hermetic compressors are central components of refrigeration and air conditioning products as they produce the necessary cooling effect. 

Defendant Tecumseh Products Company received conditional amnesty under the United States Department of Justice's Corporate Leniency Policy, while Defendants Panasonic, Embraco and Danfoss, pled guilty to federal criminal antitrust violations here in the United States.
