Ingersoll Rand Completes Habitat for Humanity Build in Indianapolis

CARMEL, IN (INGERSOLL RAND NEWS SERVICE) -- In just under two months, more than 350 Ingersoll Rand employees from Security Technologies and Residential Solutions donated 2,100 volunteer hours to help build a house for a family in need. This is the second year for Ingersoll Rand to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis.

The build process started on June 29 with a panel build held in the Ingersoll Rand Residential Solutions/Security Technologies headquarters in Carmel. Over 100 employees came out to assemble the walls of the house in the parking lot, before moving them on a truck to the property downtown. Employee teams participated in 13 additional on-site build days leading up to the completion of the house in August. The home is built with care and proudly outfitted with Schlage locks and a Trane HVAC system to keep her and her family comfortable and secure in the future.

Scott Perry of Security Technologies helped lead the entire build and represented Ingersoll Rand during the home dedication. “Seeing the joy and gratitude expressed by the homeowner was a very emotional and powerful experience,” he said. “We are all honored to represent Ingersoll Rand and work with Habitat for Humanity to provide a well-deserving family a solid, safe and comfortable place to call home.”
