Emerson Climate Technologies to host Facebook voting for favorite painted compressor
ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, September 6, 2012 – Emerson Climate Technologies, a business segment of Emerson (NYSE: EMR) is celebrating its 100 millionth Copeland Scroll™ compressor milestone with an innovative global program designed to celebrate compressor technology and the people who make them.
Each of the eight Copeland Scroll compressor manufacturing facilities around the world turned one of their units into art by painting a compressor with a unique design reflecting the plant and local community. Plant employees and local artists from Sidney (Ohio), Lebanon (Missouri), Natchitoches (Louisiana), Suzhou (China), Rayong (Thailand), Cookstown (Northern Ireland), Reynosa (Mexico) and Welkenraedt (Belgium) designed and painted each compressor.
Photos and descriptions of the compressors are available on the Copeland Scroll Facebook page. The HVACR community is invited to vote daily for their favorite compressor on Facebook September 6-26. The top three vote-getters will make a donation to a local HVACR training school or program.
“We are overwhelmed by the beauty of these painted compressors and the immense pride that went into creating them. We have an incredibly talented team who we now know understands both the science and art of compressor technology,” said Cathy Billing, marketing manager for Emerson Climate Technologies. “I encourage everyone in the HVACR industry to check out the photos and see these compressors in person as they tour the world.”
The painted Copeland Scroll compressors will be travelling to Mechanical Systems Week, AHR Mexico, Chillventa, Emerson’s Wholesaler Conference, AHR Expo and China Refrigeration Expo in a display recognizing the 100 millionth scroll compressor milestone and the 25th anniversary of scroll production.
Emerson ushered in a new phase of energy efficiency for the HVACR industry 25 years ago with the launch of Copeland Scroll technology in 1987. By 1992, the company had produced one million Copeland Scroll compressors. Today, Emerson manufactures Copeland Scroll compressors in eight facilities on three continents. Copeland Scroll compressors are used by all the major OEM air conditioning and refrigeration system providers in the U.S. as well as many others globally.
