BALTIMORE — Danfoss announced the groundbreaking on its new manufacturing facility in Tallahassee, Florida, on September 21. The 167,000 SF building, scheduled for completion in early 2023, will host manufacturing for the VTX line and two TT/TG lines for Danfoss’ Turbocor compressors. The new facility will triple current manufacturing capacity to meet growing demand from the American, European, and Asian Pacific markets for cooling and heating high efficiency compressors.
Once manufacturing operations are moved to the new building, the existing 70,000 SF building will be converted to an Oil-Free Technology Center, housing R&D activities including pilot productions of new cooling technologies and services.
“We are excited about increasing our manufacturing capacity,” said Ricardo Schneider, president of Danfoss Turbocor. “We’re at an inflection point with our technology as we see significant growth year-over-year. The technology is moving toward mainstream, and this new facility will help us continue to innovate and develop new technologies to remain a market leader in low-carbon cooling. With the urgent need to reduce our carbon emissions and slow the rate of global warming, Danfoss will continue to be a leader in clean energy technologies.”
