painted scroll winners
Emerson scrolls decorated by employees in Thailand, Missouri, and Ohio were honored in a recent contest.
ST. LOUIS — Three painted Copeland Scroll™ compressors have emerged as the industry favorites in global online voting sponsored by Emerson Climate Technologies.

Painted compressors from manufacturing facilities in Lebanon, Mo.; Rayong, Thailand; and Sidney, Ohio were the top vote-getters in a global Facebook promotion that saw nearly 135,000 total votes and more than 1,100 comments. The contest was part of Emerson’s celebration of its 100 millionth Copeland Scroll compressor milestone, designed to celebrate compressor technology and the people who make them.

Each winning facility will make a donation to a local HVACR training school or program. Donations from Lebanon will go to Ozarks Technical Community College; donations from Rayong will go to Bann Pluakdaeng School; and donations from Sidney will go to Upper Valley Career Center HVACR Program.

“This contest surpassed all of our expectations and really drew together our employees, our communities, and the local HVACR programs we support,” said Cathy Billing, marketing manager for Emerson Climate Technologies. “All of the compressors are wonderful works of art that we are proud to display around the world.”

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 Ohio, Missouri, Louisiana, China, Thailand, Northern Ireland, Mexico, and Belgium designed and painted each compressor.

The painted Copeland Scroll compressors are 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.
