Danfoss recognized by Economic Development Council of Tallahassee/Leon County for its impact on technology, jobs, and local partnerships

Danfoss welcomed the Economic Development Council of Tallahassee/Leon County at its facility in Tallahassee, Fla., to discuss the impact of research and development and manufacturing operations on the local economy. Danfoss engineers and manufactures its award-winning Turbocor oil-free, magnetic bearing, variable speed centrifugal compressors in Tallahassee for customers around the world.

During the press conference, the Economic Development Council announced Danfoss as its featured business for the month of April as part of its “Made in Tallahassee: Produced Regionally, Sold Globally” initiative, a public awareness campaign that focuses on the important role that the research and development, manufacturing, software development, and technology industries play in the success of the local economy.

“Danfoss is a great example of what business recruitment looks like for a community,” says Kyle Touchstone, executive vice president of the Economic Development Council. “Since moving to our community, they have been able to expand and excel. They illustrate what close partnerships with the local universities can provide to a company including valuable research and development along with a highly skilled talent pipeline.”

The press conference also was attended by City Commissioner Curtis Richardson and County Commissioner Mary Ann Lindley, as well as representatives from Florida State University and Leon County Research and Development Authority.

Danfoss collaborates with Florida State University on experimental aerodynamic technologies and materials research, and also partners with the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory – the world’s largest high-power magnet laboratory – on new materials and manufacturing processes.

“Danfoss is honored to be recognized by the Economic Development Council in their Made in Tallahassee initiative. As the pioneer and worldwide leader of oil-free magnetic bearing compressor technology, we have strong collaboration and cooperation with Florida State University, which allows us to continue our research and development of this revolutionary technology,” says Ricardo Schneider, president/CEO, Danfoss Turbocor Compressors.

In January, Danfoss was awarded a prestigious AHR Expo Innovation Award for its new Turbocor VTT series of compressors, which was also named the 2015 “Product of the Year.” Danfoss Turbocor compressors are used around the world in energy-intense buildings, such as data centers, hospitals, office buildings, schools and universities, and government buildings, and, according to a study conducted by the U.S. General Services Administration, have been proven to reduce energy costs by as much as 42 percent. The compressors’ oil-free design also minimizes maintenance requirements and noise.
