ATHENS, Ga. – It’s a double celebration for Carrier Transicold this year.
The company is celebrating both 75 years of the Carrier road transport refrigeration innovation and 45 years of the the Carrier Transicold business.
“Carrier’s history encompasses more than a century of innovation in air conditioning and refrigeration, and pioneering achievements in truck and trailer refrigeration have been an integral part of this story,” said David Appel, president, Carrier Transicold & Refrigeration Systems. “Now in our 75th year of providing products for road transport refrigeration, we continue to drive the industry forward with high-performance, environmentally sustainable refrigeration solutions.”
The company was formed back in 1970, when it acquired the California-based transport refrigeration equipment maker Transicold Co. and combined it with its Special Products Division, which had experience in trucking applications extending back to 1940.
Today, hallmarks of Carrier Transicold include streamlined designs with minimal moving parts like the Vector trailer units, featuring E-Drive, all-electric refrigeration technology and Carrier’s X4 series of mechanical trailer units, which have a reputation for high capacity, reliability and ease of service.
“Our X4 series and Vector trailer units and our Supra truck refrigeration units deliver the high capacities that our customers require, while also enhancing the sustainability profiles of their operations,” said Appel. “Benefits include low total cost of ownership and compliance with transport refrigeration emissions regulations.”
Appel added: “Our products have long served an important need delivering food and other temperature-sensitive goods to expanding population centers. It’s a heritage we’re proud of and one that we intend to build further upon with more sustainable and innovative transport refrigeration solutions. It is this higher purpose that motivates and excites us to continue.”
