Approximately 800 AL-KO Air Technology employees in Europe and China have joined the Trane Technologies team. AL-KO Air Technology’s three manufacturing sites - in Jettingen-Scheppach and Wittenberg, Germany and Taicang, China - are now part of Trane Technologies, along with its sales offices in Europe and Asia.
