“Athens has been a pivotal location for Carrier Transicold to maintain a sustainable manufacturing operation in the U.S., enabling Carrier Transicold to serve customers around the world,” said Tom Ondo, general manager, Carrier Transicold Truck/Trailer/Rail Americas. “We’ve experienced sustained growth and productivity over the past 25 years, and the most important factor fueling the exceptional performance is our highly skilled, dedicated employee family.
