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. (NYSE:TT), formerly American Standard Companies Inc., in a transaction valued at approximately $10.1 billion, including transaction fees and the assumption of approximately $150 million of Trane net debt. Trane is a global leader in indoor climate control systems, services and solutions with expected 2007 revenues of $7.4 billion.

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!
