Our Local History

Trane has been serving the Gulf South for nearly 60 years.  From the early 1960s to late 1990s, our local Trane offices operated as franchises.  The franchises are now Commercial Sales Offices (CSOs) wholly owned and operated by Trane. Trane opened the New Orleans and Baton Rouge offices in 1997, followed by Gulfport in 1999, Mobile in 2004, Pensacola in 2007, Lake Charles in 2013, and Shreveport in 2014. Visit the new Shreveport location at 9225 Premier Court in Shreveport.

Our interest in the Gulf South runs deep within our organization.  Our associates play an active role in making this the best place to live and work in the country.
