Carrier Transicold Georgia facility celebrates 25th anniversary

Carrier Transicold is commemorating the 25th anniversary of its U.S. manufacturing facility in Athens, Ga., where truck and trailer refrigeration units are manufactured to rigorous quality specifications.

Carrier Transicold’s Athens employees are active supporters of the local communities in which they live and work, each year raising funds and contributing countless hours of volunteer support to numerous organizations, including United Way of Northeast Georgia, American Cancer Society, March of Dimes, Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, Soles4Souls and several others.

In that spirit, employees even turned a recent anniversary commemoration into another fundraiser. This year the plant acquired a bulldog sculpture – significant in the Athens community, which is also home to the University of Georgia Bulldogs. An artist with connections to the Athens community was commissioned to adorn the sculpture with scenes reflecting the company’s heritage, and employees held a naming contest, generously voting with their wallets from a roster of 10 names. “Frostbite” was the winning name, and the local United Way chapter was the beneficiary of the proceeds

“Our employees take great pride in their work and in the community, as well as the fact that our products are assembled here in Athens,” said Matt Walker, plant manager. “Together we’ve accomplished a tremendous amount over the past 25 years, and we’re looking forward to seeing what the team can do next.”
