Danfoss Turbocor Compressors will be building a new facility in Tallahassee, Florida, and will add 120 new jobs. The new facility will expand the company’s existing footprint within Innovation Park in Tallahassee, Florida, which includes the engineering and manufacturing operations of Danfoss and its Application Development Center that opened earlier this year.
The new jobs will include full-time research and development positions within advanced manufacturing. Construction is expected to begin in early 2018 and is expected to be completed in 2019. Danfoss is the pioneer of oil-free, magnetic bearing, variable speed technology and manufacturer of high-efficiency electronic components, controls, compressors and variable frequency drives for air-conditioning, heating and refrigeration systems.
Ricardo Schneider, president, Danfoss Turbocor Compressors, said, “The investment in this new facility signifies Danfoss’ commitment to bringing new, innovative technologies to the market, and to partnering with our customers to engineer high-efficiency, reliable, environmentally responsible solutions. In Tallahassee, we have the tremendous opportunity to collaborate with world-class researchers in aerodynamics, power electronics and magnetic technologies at Florida State University. We are excited and proud to grow our capabilities here and further build on the success and potential of our relationship with great local partners like FSU.”
