Trane Celebrates World FM Day by Honoring the Dedication of our Building’s Heroes

Davidson, N.C., May 17, 2017 —Trane®, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand (NYSE:IR), is celebrating the eighth annual World FM Day by recognizing facility managers across North America who have a track record of excellence in the buildings and projects they manage.

Trane will spotlight facility managers across its web and social channels, sharing their stories and extending a special thank you for all that they do to manage the strategic goals of their organization alongside the day-to-day operations of the buildings where we live, work, learn and play. Trane will also be sharing information and tips on how to create positive experiences for occupants and play a transformative role in the efficiency of today’s buildings.

“Every building has a purpose and a direct impact on the sustainability of our world. The people behind the buildings – the facility managers we celebrate today who manage building performance — unleash each building’s potential and in turn, make an impact on our everyday lives,” said Jason Bingham, vice president of energy services and control at Trane. “We are truly honored to partner with these exceptional individuals by providing input and guidance on their energy strategies and digitally driven solutions which give them the precise, measurable and digital control critical to making their buildings spaces where people can thrive.”

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. This year’s theme, “Enabling Positive Experiences,” emphasizes facilities management’s significant role in setting and managing the scene for delivering exceptional customer experiences.
