Danfoss Turbocor® has been delivering energy-efficient technologies across the globe from their campus in Innovation Park for more than 15 years. Tallahassee, home to Florida State University, Florida A&M University, and Tallahassee Community College, provides a talent pipeline for its operations and an opportunity for research collaborations with students and faculty. “In order to continue to develop technologies that will help reduce our customers’ carbon footprint, we need to have access to the best and brightest talent and research institutions”, says Ricardo Schneider, President/CEO of Danfoss Turbocor®.
When Danfoss opened its doors in 2007, the company made the commitment to being an integral part of the community. Ricardo and his team have been heavily involved in the Tallahassee Chamber and consider the capital city an ideal home for Danfoss and its growing operations. “The Chamber plays a very important role in our ecosystem, working with all stakeholders to promote economic growth and continue to drive a higher quality of life for everyone in our community”, Ricardo mentions. In October 2021, Danfoss broke ground on a new manufacturing facility, scheduled for completion in late 2023, which will triple its current manufacturing capacity and create new jobs. In the next five years, they’re projected to double their current manufacturing capacity in order to keep up with the global demand.
Tallahassee is full of opportunity and growth potential. Companies like Danfoss Turbocor® that set roots and make a commitment to the community truly showcase our region as a place where industries can thrive.
