One might not think of a Copeland Scroll compressor as a piece of art, but eight compressors from around the world, including Lebanon, have been transformed into canvases and are now competing for votes.

In celebration of its 100 millionth Copeland Scroll compressor being manufactured, Emerson Climate Technologies is holding an art competition. A Copeland Scroll compressor has been painted with a design reflecting the manufacturing plant’s location. Plants in Sidney, Ohio; Natchitoches, La.; Suzhou, China; Rayong, Thailand; Cookstown, Northern Ireland; Reynosa, Mexico; Welkenraedt, Belgium and Lebanon have each submitted a painted compressor to the competition.

The compressors can be voted on at the company’s Facebook page, People can cast their vote for the best design once a day through Sept. 26. The top three designs will make a donation to local HVAC repair training programs. Locally, a donation will be made to the HVAC program at Ozarks Technical Community College in Lebanon.

As of press time, Lebanon’s design was in second place with more than 6,600 votes. A compressor painted for the Rayong, Thailand, manufacturing facility is in first place with more than 7,000 votes and the Wilkenraedt, Belgium, facility’s compressor is in third with just over 5,000 votes.
