Ingersoll-Rand Co. Limited last week celebrated 100 years of continuous listing and trading of its common stock on the New York Stock Exchange. To commemorate the anniversary, Herbert Henkel, chairman, president and CEO, rang the closing bell.
“Throughout our history, Ingersoll Rand people and technologies have contributed significantly to global industry and economic progress,” said Henkel. “Today’s anniversary is an opportunity to celebrate Ingersoll Rand’s innovations and achievements, while extending a well-deserved gesture of appreciation to the employees, customers and investors who continue to drive our success.”
Ingersoll Rand’s common stock was initially offered on the NYSE on Oct. 11, 1906, approximately a year after its formation through the 1905 merger of the Ingersoll-Sergeant Drill Co. and Rand Drill Co., two leading construction and mining equipment companies of that time. Over the past century, Ingersoll Rand has grown to be a global diversified industrial company with 40,000 employees worldwide, customers in close to 200 countries, and revenues approaching $11 billion.
Ingersoll Rand is a diversified industrial company providing products, services and integrated solutions to industries ranging from transportation and manufacturing to food retailing, construction and agriculture.
