Davidson, N.C., May 16, 2018 —Trane®, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand (NYSE:IR), is proud to recognize facility managers around the world who have taken strides to reduce energy demand and improve overall operating costs and environments in celebration of the ninth annual World FM Day.

Led by Global FM, the Global Facility Management Association, World FM Day honors facility management professionals and the vital work that they do to ensure the productivity, health and overall safety of those who work in buildings around the world. World FM Day provides an opportunity for sharing both good and challenging experiences and celebrating building successes.

This year’s World FM Day theme, “Enabling Positive Experiences,” emphasizes the many and varied ways the facilities management role impacts setting and managing the scene for delivering exceptional customer experiences. Anticipating and managing the unforeseen and disruptive forces in today’s world can help ensure facility outcomes and outputs meet expectations, helping further enhance a building’s environment.

To celebrate, Trane will spotlight facility managers across its web and social channels, sharing their stories and extending gratitude for all that they do to manage their organizations’ strategic goals. In addition to being responsible for the day-to-day operations of the buildings, these featured facility management professionals are dedicated to creating environmentally conscious work conditions and optimizing connected buildings.

Trane will be sharing information and tips on how to create positive experiences for occupants, as well as how to play a transformative role in the efficiency of today’s connected buildings. Saving energy and money, keeping people comfortable, increasing uptime and helping ensure maintenance is easy — these are just a few connected building advantages. Trane wants to recognize the facility managers who tap into their buildings’ data opportunities and help transform the building into assets that positively impact business goals and customer experiences.

“We have a great appreciation for our diverse customer base, and today we get to celebrate the exceptional facility managers — the people behind the buildings,” said Joe Hirl, vice president of energy services and controls at Trane. “We are honored to partner with these dedicated individuals by providing input and guidance on their energy strategies and supply-driven solutions to reduce energy demand and operating costs to increase efficiency.”
