DAVIDSON, NC - Ingersoll Rand, a global provider of compressed air technology, has received the 2009 Frost & Sullivan U.S. Automotive Technician's Choice Award for overall best brand of air compressors for the second consecutive year. Among top competitors, the independent survey found that Ingersoll Rand air compressors were preferred as the overall best brand by a margin of two to one.

According to the survey, 38 percent of the U.S. automotive technicians surveyed listed Ingersoll Rand as one of the top three overall best brands in the air compressor category, and 25 percent ranked Ingersoll Rand as No. 1, placing them well above their closest competitors.
