ROCKY GAP STATE PARK, MD — Standard Air & Lite of Pittsburgh, PA, recently held its sixth annual engineering conference here. The conference brought together over 150 consulting engineers and building owners, and used Carrier Corporation’s new Mobile Innovation Center — an 18-wheeled, self-contained, traveling exhibition trailer.

“We’ve done customer shows before where we’ve undergone a lot of logistics to get equipment in to show customers, but here the trailer pulls up, you open the doors, and you’ve got an instant all-weather, training tool delivered in one simple package,” said Ed Szpara, PE, manager of systems and engineering for Standard Air & Lite.

At Rocky Gap, Carrier North America commercial president Todd Bluedorn unveiled the Mobile Innovation Center to Standard Air & Lite’s customers.

“The brand new 18-wheeler Carrier Mobile Innovation Center making its debut here today is full of all our new products — products designed with customer input,” said Bluedorn. “Our product and technology strategy is directed at providing solutions for our customers, not just metal boxes. We don’t sell air conditioners, furnaces, and refrigerated display cases — we sell cooling, comfort, and preservation.”

Carrier’s mobile center will also appear at a number of events across the U.S. For a schedule or for more information on the mobile center, go to (website).
