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, Mo.; Natchitoches, La.; 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, www.facebook.com/copelandscrollcompressors. 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, 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 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.
