Innovation at Ingersoll Rand

Growth Through Innovation

Innovation drives our ability to advance the quality of life and deliver results to our customers. Growth through innovation, emerging markets and services requires understanding our customers, connecting our existing capabilities and delivering results in new and innovative ways.

We strive for continual improvement in our products, services and processes, and in the value we provide to our customers, employees and the communities we serve. We embrace sustainability as a catalyst for business growth and innovation. Ingersoll Rand’s Center for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability (CEES) works collaboratively with our businesses to address global issues that impact energy, food and water by providing sustainable solutions, product stewardship and supporting initiatives that deliver results.

Innovation Facts:

  • Innovation revenues totaled approximately $3.3 billion in 2012. We have almost doubled the proportion of our revenues from innovation, which we measure as the total revenues delivered by new products introduced over the last three years.
  • In 2012, we opened a new laboratory in the Czech Republic and expanded our capabilities in China, further increasing the energy efficiency of our product offerings. These laboratories are specifically dedicated to research, development and testing, allowing us to improve time to market and react quickly to changing customer demands while developing local solutions required by the European and Asian markets.
