Danfoss has announced the ground-breaking of its new manufacturing facility in Tallahassee, Florida. The 167,000 SF building, scheduled for completion in early 2023, will host state-of-the-art manufacturing for VTF products and Turbocor compressors.

The new facility will triple current manufacturing capacity to meet a fast-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 Centre, housing R&D activities including pilot productions of new cooling technologies and services.

Turbocor compressors use magnetic-bearing technology instead of oil and provide a low-carbon and ultra-low GWP cooling option for commercial air conditioning and refrigeration units. The oil-free high efficiency compressor technology is a key enabler to meet the decarbonization goals of commercial buildings, cities and countries. Danfoss hopes the new facility will allow them to continue the development of technology to reduce the carbon footprint of key vital infrastructure like data centers, hospitals, hotels, airports and their needs in cooling and heating.

The company has made similar investments in its manufacturing site in China and Configuration Center in Europe in order to support its global customers.
