Brady Inc., a Trane franchise that provides energy systems and building solutions for commercial and industrial facilities across North Carolina, has announced a $25,000 donation to the College of Engineering at North Carolina A&T State University. The Ingersoll Rand Foundation, through the Trane Climate Solutions Group, provided the gift.

Don Brady, founder of Brady Inc., has been a longtime supporter of North Carolina A&T including mentoring several College of Engineering students during the past 50 years, according to the company. The donation request came as a result of conversations between Brady and Interim Dean Winser Alexander.

“When Winser informed me that the College of Engineering lacked the support necessary to fully fund several vital programs, I felt it was imperative that I get involved,” Brady said. “A&T students have interned at Brady Inc. and graduates are employed at Trane.”

Working together, Brady and Alexander drafted a partnership proposal. It contains a request for financial support of student needs that include scholarships, internships, and design projects. It also contains funding for faculty development. Beyond a request for money, Brady and Alexander proposed expanding internships at Trane and Brady Inc. Brady is headquartered in Greensboro, N.C., with offices in Raleigh, Fayetteville, Wilmington and Charlotte. Founded in 1962, the company remains a family-owned enterprise, today employing nearly 300.
