Looking back on 2019, we knew the year would pose a challenge. Federal interest rate concerns, tariff uncertainty, a slowing global economy, and a government shutdown kicking off the year played a role.
The good news is, we’ve demonstrated we’re collectively on the right track with products and programs to win in this aggressive market. We are gaining share, on average, while the industry contracts. We’re proud of the successful launch of our FER furnace platform and enhanced rebates to help dealers win at the kitchen table.

I have observed this team’s commitment to innovation and customer focus — two priorities that will remain at the core of Carrier’s success going forward. From engineering to product manufacturing to services, we have the premier home comfort portfolio. We will maintain our winning formula, continue to focus on growth and performance, and ensure that we are the industry leader in the eyes of our customers, employees, and our shareholders.
But with all the many accomplishments that Carrier has achieved over more than a century, our best days are ahead of us. I look forward to working with all of you

Building on that legacy of support, Carrier recently participated in the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project for the second time. Each year, hundreds of volunteers and future homeowners help build a housing community alongside the former President and Mrs. Carter. This year, the Carter Work Project was held in October and it constructed 21 affordable homes in the north Nashville neighborhood of Park Preserve.
To support the project, Carrier donated 21 Infinity® 16 heat pump systems – one for each Carter Work Project Home – helping to provide dependable and energy-efficient cooling and heating. The system is paired with an Infinity® control, offering homeowners the ability to control humidification, dehumidification, airflow, ventilation, indoor air quality and up to eight separate comfort zones through intelligent user interface.

In fact, Carrier has built more Habitat homes in Indianapolis than any other sponsor and has donated approximately 576 systems to the Indy Chapter during this nearly 25-year relationship. Carrier is the exclusive HVAC supplier for Greater Indy Habitat homes. Thanks to all volunteers, and be on the look out for a recap video highlighting the 2019 Carter Work Project, coming soon.

TReduce. Restore. Reuse.
he Carrier Green Team (CGT), led by Nick Kamm, has a mission of identifying and overseeing environmental sustainability initiatives at the Indianapolis
campus and within the local community.
Recently they partnered with Keep Indianapolis Beautiful (KIB) to clear an invasive plant species in Indianapolis. 25 Carrier teammates volunteered to identify, cut down, spray and clear invasive plants from Riverside Park in Indianapolis. Over an acre of land was cleared of Honeysuckle, a shrub that quickly overtakes native plants by several methods, including poisoning the ground below it. Activities like this help preserve biodiversity in forests and wild lands. Improving biodiversity of plant species has a chain reaction effect up the food chain which helps support larger birds and mammals.
The event was considered a success, volunteers enjoyed giving back to the community and receiving education on the importance of biodiversity. CGT will continue to partner with KIB and host this as an annual event.

A VIDEO IS WORTH
A THOUSAND PICTURES
CARRIER AND BRYANT’S NEW, QUICK HIT VIDEO SERIES
provides distribution with a sneak peek into what’s planned for 2020, and the support we are providing to help advance their business.
In October, Carrier and Bryant began publishing short, “quick hit” videos in order to provide distribution with a look at what we are doing at the factory and how we can help them up their game. The videos are high level overviews of their respective topics, with the intent to discuss more in-person about each subject when we are with them at the Sales Leadership and Territory Managers’ meeting in January.
With a little humor incorporated, this series has proven to not only be a different approach to some drier topics, but a great way for our channel partners to retain information. Be sure to check out the video catalog at MLCtraining.com, and filter by TM Tracks and Red Talks to view the available videos. We will continue adding to the playlist.

GET THE SCOOP
With the great activities that we are involved in, and all of the events that are taking place with our philanthropic efforts, we are altering the 30 South Meridian Intranet site to provide a landing spot to better share this information.
This site was originally created to provide teammates with general information about the new space downtown. While that information will still be present, we are adding a section for “community” content. Here, visitors will be able to find information about our philanthropic efforts, opportunities to volunteer, information from the Carrier Connections team (introduced earlier in this newsletter) and more.
We are currently under construction, so be sure to check the following link in the very near future for updated content.
