Carrier was honored by both organizations for its Everest Project, carried out by the team at Carrier Residential, North America. The Everest Project involved the complete redesign of its air conditioning split systems product line, consisting of Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) under its 9 major brands. The redesign and repackaging of Carrier's product line was successfully completed in a short span of 18 months. This represents one of the largest investments in Carrier's history and the most comprehensive redesign project in the history of Carrier Residential Systems.
Winning the Progressive Manufacturing Award in the Innovation Mastery category reflects the company's dedication to product innovation, which is the cornerstone of Carrier's strategy and success in the HVAC industry. The redesign of its cooling platform is a significant step in strengthening this cornerstone and is one step closer towards achieving Carrier's long term business goals.

This project was appropriately named 'Everest' as it represents one of the largest investments and most comprehensive redesign projects in Carrier's history," said Rick Roetken, Director of Marketing for Carrier Residential & Light Commercial Systems, Carrier Corporation.
"We are leading the industry by providing customers with the broadest line of products to meet new energy efficiency standards. Above all, these recognitions are a testament to Carrier's forward-thinking strategy, to support great design with the right resources and translate it into business success," said Roetken.
