Titan Marine Air reopens in Lauderdale


By Lucy Chabot Reed

Titan Marine Air has reopened in Fort Lauderdale after a five-year hiatus.

Founder of the air conditioning repair company, South African-native Kobus Swanepoel, moved to Sint Maarten in 2010, closing his Fort Lauderdale operations. In the islands, he’s developed a focus on Italian-made refrigeration and air conditioning systems, he said, because of all the Italian-made boats he serviced there. He’s partnered with manufacturers such as Frigomar, Condaria and Clima.

Now clients are asking for his services in Fort Lauderdale, too, he said, so he’s restarted his operations there, with Francisco Figueras as manager.

He said he hopes to expand in Palma next year.
