ST. LOUIS — Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., a business of Emerson, celebrated a significant industry milestone earlier this month when the 100 millionth Copeland Scroll™ compressor rolled off the production line in Lebanon, Mo.

“We are grateful to our global team of employees, past and present, who worked over the past 25 years to produce a technology that has been adopted by the industry at an incredible rate,” said Ed Purvis, business leader, Emerson Climate Technologies. “I am proud to have been part of the original team that brought Copeland Scroll compressors to market, but I am even more excited about what the future holds. Modulating technology, compressor electronics, and growth in new markets globally are all part of where we’re going with Copeland Scroll technology.”

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 major OEM air conditioning and refrigeration system providers in the U.S., as well as many others globally.

Copeland Scroll technology first made its mark in North American residential air conditioning before expanding to the commercial air conditioning and refrigeration markets worldwide.
