February flew by so fast and we’re about to finish the first quarter of the year already. From left to right, we hear fascinating stories about organizations, companies and even individuals who are creating their own marks in the engineering community. GineersNow’s mission is to share these wonderful stories and the latest news in our attempt to educate and inspire every engineer in different parts of the world.

For decades, air conditioning has helped people from homes to businesses, bringing them comfort and increased productivity during extreme weathers and making hot summer weathers more bearable for everyone indoors. When you ask a person, more so an engineer or a contractor, what company comes first into mind when speaking about air-conditioning, one of the first names that would pop up, if not the first, is Carrier.
