Good News for Vidalia Trane Plant
Wednesday, 04 March 2009
March 4--  Ingersoll Rand recently announced plans to provide capital funding of more than $20 million for its Vidalia, Ga., plant.  The southern Georgia operation employs approximately 500 and manufactures residential heating and air conditioning units under the brand names Trane and American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning.  In operation in Vidalia for more than 18 years, the 418,500-square foot facility will be updated/redesigned to accommodate future product plans. 

“This capital investment on the part of Ingersoll Rand recognizes the excellent work by the employees in the Vidalia plant and reinforces the company’s willingness to invest in the business – even in these times,” said Marek May, Vidalia plant manager. “We certainly appreciate the vote of confidence that Ingersoll Rand is making in us and are proud that our plant was selected for the funding.   We are eager to start planning the facility updates."

Implementation of the facility redesign is expected to begin in late 2009 with production on the new lines targeted for Q3 2010.  A detailed plan is being finalized by the Vidalia team so that full production can be maintained while new equipment is installed and the redesign is finalized.
