In 1971, when Trane first opened its doors on Benjamin Street, few could have predicted the success of the plant and its operations four decades later. In July of that year, the first handful of employees, seven, were hired to begin fabricating and assembling prototype units. In January of 1972, the first orders were shipped. The product built in Rushville is Variable Air Volume units (VAV).
This year, several employees are celebrating their 41st anniversary with Trane. Employee engagement at the plant is what drives its success.
Today, Trane in Rushville, manufactures units in the most state-of-the-art facility in the world. The most advanced manufacturing techniques in the industry have been implemented to provide an exceptionally rugged and reliable VAV unit. All products are UL listed for safety and provide proven performance.
