OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — SPX Cooling Technologies Inc., a full-line, full-service designer and manufacturer of evaporative cooling towers and air-cooled heat exchangers, is bringing a literal "truckload" of its products to more than 50 locations in 33 states across the United States. As part of its 100-year celebration of Marley cooling products, the “Marley Tour of the Century Road Show” offers an in-depth, in-person look at cooling technology, including the MH Element Fluid Cooler, the NC Cooling Tower, control systems, components, and more.

“This road show is a great way to engage with and show our customers the unique benefits our products can provide in their applications,” explained JP Valiulis, VP and GM, commercial HVAC cooling Americas, SPX Cooling Technologies. “We’re proud to share our legacy of cooling innovations and we’re excited about the ‘road’ our company is traveling to advance our products for efficiency, sustainability, and quality.”

The Marley brand traces its history to the formation of the Power Plant Equipment Company in Kansas City, Missouri in 1922. By the mid-1920’s, founders L.T. Mart and Chester Smiley had patented new spray nozzles and spray pond inventions, and combined elements of their last names to identify these inventive products as the “Marley” brand. In 1928 the Marley Company was incorporated. The company was acquired by SPX Corporation in 2001 and today is known as SPX Cooling Technologies Inc.

Two of SPX Cooling’s Marley cooling towers will be on display during the road show: the MH Element Fluid Cooler, a highly efficient closed-loop system for both industrial and HVAC applications, and the flagship crossflow NC Cooling Tower, providing high single-cell cooling capacity, low drift rates, and independently validated low sound levels.

“This is an excellent opportunity for our new or existing customers to get inside our products, really touch and feel them in real life,” added Valiulis. “We’ve had a few exciting stops already and are looking forward to hearing more about each stop ahead.”  

The tour began on April 26 and will continue making stops into November. A map of all planned stops and dates is available at https://spxcooling.com/road-show/
