Hamilton, Bermuda and Piscataway, New Jersey, December 17, 2007 – Ingersoll-Rand Company Limited (NYSE:IR) announced today that it has executed a definitive agreement to acquire Trane Inc.

Does Trane still want the Countryside Golf Course property for expansion? The “synergies” word should make the Trane employees quiver. The acquired company employees always get the boot! Is this a surprise to the Trane folks in Tuckawana Circle and Newbern Properties? Wouldn’t it just be a hoot if they closed them down .. how sweet it would be!
