This past Thursday, President-Elect Donald Trump visited the Carrier plant in Indiana, where he made a deal to save roughly half of 2,000 jobs the company planned to ship overseas. As a giant in the HVAC manufacturer, this has made a big splash in the industry and means Great Dane will be able to stock a larger portion of Made-in-America furnaces.
The deal was made through United Technologies, Carrier’s parent company. As an American manufacturer and distributor of HVAC systems, commercial refrigeration and food service equipment, many are only too happy to see Carrier’s manufacturing jobs stay in the United States. The deal extends to engineering and headquarters staff in addition to line jobs. Furthermore, Carrier has stated their intention to make additional investments in the facility to guarantee that it stays a “world-class furnace factory.”
As a family-owned American business, the folks at Great Dane were happy to hear Carrier decided to keep these jobs in the country. While shopping at Great Dane, a lot of customers ask which of our furnaces were made in the USA. Nine times out of ten, customers will pass over a furnace if they find out it was manufactured elsewhere.
