Trane celebrates a 100-year legacy

Rushville facility marks anniversary with employee celebration

RUSHVILLE — Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, is celebrating its centennial anniversary of delivering performance, innovation, commitment and knowledge to its communities. Trane locations in more than 50 countries around the world are commemorating this milestone with events throughout the month of April.

More than 100 employees at the Rushville manufacturing plant celebrated 42 years of local service April 19, 2013, with a barbeque and cake cutting ceremony. Included in the celebration was an open house for employees, family, friends and members of the community. Not including employees, approximately 185 visitors toured the facility and were treated to a catered meal and prizes. More than 30 employees volunteered to help with the event, including tours of the facility.  A “memory lane” shared pictures of employees and product from the past 42 years.   The event was a tremendous success. Mayor Mike Pavey provided a proclamation in honor of the anniversary.  

Trane operations in Rushville provide important benefits to the local community, with a long history of supporting organizations that enhance the lives of area residents and institutions. In 2012 the site contributed to community programs such as United Fund, Brian’s Cause and Toys for Tots. Additionally, the site has committed to collecting 100 bottles of shampoo, 100 pounds of food and 100 articles of clothing for a local shelter to mark the centennial anniversary.

“Trane has been a proud citizen of Rushville for more than 42 years,” said Greg Harcourt, plant manager for Trane Rushville. “We enjoy a legacy of partnership with our customers and the communities where we live and work. Support from local government, a hardworking culture and strong community ties are all important factors to the continued success of our company.”

James Trane and his son Reuben founded the Trane Company as a family business in 1913. Today, Trane is at the edge of technology in areas of residential and commercial heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC). We are a leading provider of residential HVAC systems and help customers achieve high performance buildings in these main markets across the world: healthcare, education, hospitality, retail, commercial, industrial and data centers.

One look at the brand’s proud history and it becomes clear that Trane employees are some of the most innovative and creative in the industry.

As part of its celebration for the 100th anniversary of Trane, Ingersoll Rand will rang the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on April 29.
