There's No Stopping Trane After 100 Years
A family business that started on La Crosse's riverfront in 1913 now employs people in over 50 countries a century later...
The Trane Company held its 100th birthday party back on the riverfront on Tuesday, at the La Crosse Center...with hundreds of local employees attending. The international president of the Machinists Union, Tom Buffenbarger, came to La Crosse for the event. He said the success of Trane, and its union workers, do not stop on an anniversary. Other speakers also talked about a bright future for Trane, anticipating that the company can adapt to changes in science and living habits. Buffenbarger toured a Trane plant in La Crosse, and met several workers who have been with the chiller maker for 40 years or more.
