In the south of the province Córdoba it’s cold, very cold. There is so much that it’s even been exported. The air-conditioning industry has a turnover of €423 million in Andalusia, most of it in the province of Córdoba. In Lucena, home of Keyter Technologies, S.L., it reaches -80°C, which is even colder than the lowest temperature ever noticed in Siberia (-71.2°C in Siberia, Russia).
The anomaly is not caused by rare atmospheric or climatological phenomena, but by an industry, that of cold and climate, capable of manufacturing machines that reach those temperatures from below, and up to 80°C above 0°C, and sell them all over the world. The cold sector in Cordoba, especially in Lucena, is at the head of the country in terms of turnover, employment and technological development, which is an anomaly in a province with an economy based on tourism and agriculture and few resources in the secondary sector.
