LIBERTY CORNER, N.J. - Fedders Corp. hosted a 12-day, all expense paid incentive trip to China, escorting 101 guests, including distributors, dealers, contractors, builders, and manufacturers' representatives. The trip's first stop was in Shanghai, China, where participants had the opportunity to tour Fedders' new, 92,000-square-foot research and development center. Attendees also visited Fedders Xinle Co. Ltd. in Ningbo, China, which produces central air conditioners, furnaces, split system air conditioners, PTACs, heat pumps, air handlers, and coils with annual capacity in excess of 1 million units.

Additionally, participants toured Fedders Indoor Air Quality Co. Ltd. in Suzhou, China, where residential, commercial, and industrial air cleaner and humidification products are manufactured under the company's Envirco, Trion, and Herrmidifier brands. Sightseeing in Shanghai included a tour of the city, the Shanghai Museum, the Xiang Yang Market, and the Zhujiaojiao Water Village.

"I attended both plant tours and the research center tour. The plants were very clean, simple, and efficient," said Fedders distributor Stan Carpenter, president of SWAC Wholesale Heating and Air Conditioning, Redford, Mich.
