Danfoss opens new $62m Turbocor facility

USA: Danfoss Turbocor has celebrated the opening of its new $62m, 145,000ft2 production facility in Tallahassee, Florida.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by over 100 people, including customers, community members, Danfoss president and CEO Kim Fausing and descendants of Danfoss founder Mads Clausen. 

The additional facility will host state-of-the-art manufacturing for TTS/TG/TH lines for Danfoss Turbocor compressors, doubling current capacity of the oil-free, magnetic bearing technology to more than 14,000 compressors per year. 

“The increased production will help meet the growing market demand for cooling and heating high-efficiency compressors in North America, Europe and Asia,” said Kim Fausing.

“Currently, North America is the largest market and region for Danfoss, with 34 sites, and we couldn’t be prouder of this latest chapter in Turbocor’s growth.”

“As part of Danfoss’ green growth strategy, we are regionalising our supply chains in order to manufacture products closer to our customers, improve service and decarbonise our operations. Expanding our capacity in Tallahassee is key to our growth strategy in North America,” commented Danfoss Turbocor president Ricardo Schneider.

Turbocor celebrated its 10th anniversary last November as a wholly-owned Danfoss company. Initially founded in 1994 and later becoming a joint venture with Danfoss in 2004, the company has made its mark globally. Danfoss Turbocor is continuing to grow its footprint, with an expanded facility in Haiyan, China opening next year, and the establishment of a configuration centre at Danfoss’ corporate headquarters in Nordborg, Denmark.

The Nordborg site currently handles sales and service for Turbocor’s European customers. A new production facility is scheduled for completion in 2026.
