Georgia Facility Named IndustryWeek Best Plant
Carrier Transicold’s North American manufacturing operation was recently named a 2015 IndustryWeek Best Plant, making it the first transport refrigeration equipment facility to be honored by the publication’s award. In operation since 1988, the Athens, Georgia, plant serves as Carrier Transicold’s home for its Americas’ truck, trailer and rail refrigeration business.
Equipment assembled there includes Vector™ and X4™ trailer refrigeration units, Supra® truck refrigeration units, Solara™ heating units, and PowerLINE® generator sets for sea-going container refrigeration units.
Through its comprehensive review process, IndustryWeek noted Carrier Transicold’s commitment to operational excellence and ongoing strategic investments in new manufacturing technologies with a particular focus on ergonomics, safety, sustainability, quality, lean manufacturing and lead-time reduction.
“This recognition is a powerful example of how a dedicated, diverse team can continually transform its plant operations in a positive manner,” said Matt Walker, director of operations, Carrier Transicold – Athens.
