The 48,000 ft
2building in Ann Arbor, Mich., will join
certified Tecumseh laboratories in France, Brazil and India when completed in the
summer of 2011.
According to the company, the laboratories form the backbone of a global
engineering strategy with increased focus on research, development and
applications. Much of the current laboratory in Tecumseh, Mich., also will be
relocated to the Ann Arbor facility and its capabilities significantly upgraded.
"The creation of the Tecumseh Technology Center is a significant
investment in the future that benefits our customers, shareholders, employees
and the environment," says Jim Wainright, president and CEO. "It
allows us to strategically focus on the changing needs of the refrigeration and
air-conditioning marketplace, developing the most energy-efficient and
eco-friendly products possible."
Tecumseh Technology Center will meet Energy Star accreditation qualifications
and be fully UL and ISO certified. It will have complete hydrocarbon
development and testing capability and enhanced environmental simulation
facilities. Tecumseh also will pursue LEED certification on the lab facility
build-out as part of its commitment to new technologies.
