In 1983, SORIC moved to a new building in the Port Industrial area, in a move to specialization that goes beyond classic consumer goods distribution. Air-conditioning and industrial refrigeration allow SORIC to offer technical support as well as products. To develop this strategy, SORIC took over in 2008, a company called ESERPRO, an important local player in professional kitchen equipment.
