Ingersoll Rand Business Spotlight

In the late 1800s, Simon Ingersoll’s steam-powered rock drill was patented, and the Ingersoll Rock Drill Company was formed. With mergers and name changes over the last century, Ingersoll Rand has grown to be the industrial product company we know today, producing a wide range of industrial products for a multitude of industries, such as chemicals, electronics, and food. 

In 1965, Ingersoll Rand established themselves in Mocksville, where they have a 130-acre lot dedicated to the business. As of 2019, the Mocksville plant is home to Ingersoll Rand’s core product line production, including the manufacture of a variety of air compressors and unique parts. Ingersoll Rand is proud to invest in the Mocksville community, with more opportunities for young people with their expanded apprenticeship program, and continued investments in their entire existing workforce.
