New facility is focused on producing air-cooled chillers for the data centre and high tech markets.
Trane has expanded its commercial manufacturing operations in Grand Rapids, Michigan, opening a third facility focused on producing air-cooled chillers for the data centre and high tech markets.
According to the company, the demand for these products is forecast to grow by approximately 20% by 2027.
The company first established manufacturing in Grand Rapids in 1998, and in 2021 a second plant was opened to focus on manufacturing air-cooled chillers for data centres and other large commercial applications, such as hospitals, municipalities and universities.
The new plant will produce Ascend air-cooled chillers and essentially doubles the location’s air-cooled chiller manufacturing capability and nearly quadruples the site’s total manufacturing footprint.
