Danfoss Celebrates Second Expansion in Tallahassee-Leon County with Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

05/31/2024

We’re excited to announce that Danfoss unveiled their second expansion in Tallahassee-Leon County earlier this week. Over 100 attendees—including local leadership, descendants of Danfoss founder Mads Clausen, Danfoss executives, and Danfoss customers from across the globe—heard remarks from Danfoss President & CEO Kim Fausing and Ricardo Schneider, President & CEO of Danfoss Turbocor® leading up to a ribbon cutting ceremony on the plant floor, and a tour of the facility. 

The $62 million145,000 square-foot manufacturing facility doubles Danfoss’ current capacity with room to grow as demand for oil-free compressor technologies increases. The facility features state-of-the-art manufacturing for TTS/TG/TH lines for Danfoss Turbocor® compressors, increasing overall efficiency of the production process while improving employee safety. This expansion creates over 100 new jobs, opportunities for innovation, and shines a spotlight on Tallahassee-Leon County as a vital economic hub recognized around the world. 

“Tallahassee offers an exceptional blend of strategic advantages, making it an ideal place for Danfoss Turbocor to continue to grow and expand. The city’s robust infrastructure, skilled workforce, and vibrant business community create an environment ripe for innovation and growth. Additionally, Tallahassee’s commitment to sustainability and proximity to leading research institutions align perfectly with our mission to advance energy-efficient technologies. We are excited to contribute to and thrive in this dynamic, forward-thinking community.”
