Ingersoll Rand Company recently held a celebration saluting current employees and retirees, recognizing the company’s 50th anniversary in Campbellsville, Kentucky. Ingersoll Rand has been assembling quality air compressors used around the world in Campbellsville since October 1969.
The Campbellsville operation opened after purchasing what was previously the Reeds Candy Company property following a decision to relocate the Type 30 brand reciprocating pumps. Type 30 reciprocating pumps continue today as a reliable compressed air source and are marketed using retail and industrial distribution channels throughout North America and globally.
During the 1990’s, the operation expanded production and began assembling Rotary 5HP-50HP machines. Ingersoll Rand Campbellsville products have earned performance and quality recognition throughout industry thanks in large part to its innovative and dedicated employees.
Dan McDonnell, Ingersoll Rand Vice President – Global Operations and Integrated Supply Chain, addressed Campbellsville’s 180 team members, encouraging them to continue on their lean journey and to embrace change along the way. He expressed his appreciation to all those having played a role in the plant’s 50-year history.
Employees were also recognized and honored by State Senator Max Wise, State Representative John Carney, Taylor County Judge Executive Barry Smith, CTC Chamber of Commerce Director Kristin Davis and Economic Development Director Ron McMahan.
