Carrier Corp. will commemorate the 100-year anniversary of its subsidiary in Italy, Carrier S.p.A, with a European customer and press event at its Villasanta manufacturing facility near Milan.

In 1908, six years after Willis Carrier invented modern air-conditioning, two engineers in Milan, Chieregatti and Donesana founded Dell'Orto, a ventilating and heating systems and services company. In 1941, Dell'Orto became Dell'Orto Chieregatti. In 1945, the company built its production facilities in Villasanta and soon won projects, including La Scala in Milan and La Fenice Theater in Venice. The company was re-named Delchi in 1966, during a decade when expanded rapidly as a leading systems provider. It completed premier installations such as providing air-conditioning for Milan's Galfa skyscraper and the Gran San Bernardo tunnel ventilating system. In 1983, Carrier acquired Delchi. The company became Delchi Carrier and subsequently, in 1996, Carrier S.p.A.

Today, Carrier S.p.A's countrywide distribution network in Italy provides heating and air-conditioning solutions for residential, commercial, and industrial applications, together with a broad range of after sales services and training programs. The factory, still located in Villasanta, is one of Carrier's leading global factories, which produced more than 300,000 units in 2007. The Villasanta factory is also Carrier's global lead design centre for light commercial products focusing on duct-free splits, indoor units, small chillers, and heat pumps.
