portfolio transformation, as well as an ongoing
transformation of our operating culture.”

Our ability to leverage the enterprise has enabled us to significantly offset materials price increases, and our focus on building a ‘one Ingersoll Rand’ culture is creating new pathways for sharing knowledge, best practices and resources for the benefit of the global enterprise.
