Danfoss Hosts Groundbreaking Ceremony for New VLT Drives Facility

VLT variable frequency drives help reduce energy consumption

Last month, Danfoss hosted Congressman Don Manzullo, R-Ill., local officials and community leaders for a groundbreaking ceremony for the company’s new logistics facility in Loves Park, Ill. The company will relocate its receiving, shipping and warehousing operations into this new facility, which will create additional manufacturing capacity at the current location.

During his visit, Manzullo also participated in a discussion with top Danfoss managers about how Danfoss VLT variable frequency drives (VFDs) are helping the environment by reducing energy consumption. He was also given a plant tour so he could learn more first-hand about Danfoss’ manufacturing business in his district.

In application, VFDs present a great opportunity to save significant amounts of energy and reduce the impact on the environment by reducing the dependence on fossil fuels.

Additionally, clean energy technologies like those manufactured by Danfoss VLT Drives help to create sustainable jobs. Led by Meridian Design Build and VentureOne Real Estate LLC, the facility project will add 100,000 sq ft of space to the campus and is expected for completion this November.
