Students visit Copeland Scroll compressor plant

AACHEN, GERMANY, January 30, 2012 – Mid of January 2012 a group of students from the Belgian GTI Mortsel school in Mortsel and their teacher Jeroen Van Assche visited the Emerson Climate Technologies’ plant in Welkenraedt. Copeland Scroll™ compressors for the European refrigeration, air-conditioning and heating markets are manufactured in this Belgian factory, as well as in a second one in Northern Ireland. Because they are already in the second year of their studies to become refrigeration installers, they had a lot of questions to ask before their final exams next year. Léon Crommentuijn, Sales Director for Benelux at Emerson Climate Technologies, gave a seminar to the class about products, digital capacity modulation and introduced them to Emerson Climate Technologies’ Select Software to help them make the right product choices in the field, later on. Before leaving in the afternoon the students visited the production and assembly lines where the new ‘Summit’ Scroll compressors are manufactured and painted. “Thank you very much for the opportunity to visit your company, the students were fascinated by the technology and the outstanding performance”, Mr. Van Assche commented before leaving the plant. This cooperation with the GTI Mortsel school will continue so that the next classes also have a chance of attending the seminars and visiting the plant in Welkenraedt.
