Ingersoll Rand, a world leader in creating and sustaining safe, comfortable and efficient environments, is looking to fill in its product family tree with photos of the oldest, still-functioning, Ingersoll Rand tools and air compressors. The submission of the oldest air compressor will win a Garage Mate Single-Stage Air Compressor, and the oldest tool entry will receive a new cordless drill.

To enter, go to the Ingersoll Rand Facebook page (facebook.com/ingersollrand) and click on the “photo contest” app to fill out the contest entry form. The photos will be added to the Ingersoll Rand online family scrapbook, and all participants with valid entries will receive T-shirts while supplies lasts.

The contest kicked off Monday, September 17, and officially ends Dec. 30, 2012. Participants may enter in one or both the air compressor and tool categories. Grand prize winners will be announced on December 31.

“From 1904 when Ingersoll-Sergeant drills helped build the Panama Canal, to 1927 when our air compressors helped build Mount Rushmore, our story has been intertwined with history,” said Jennifer Eckert, marketing manager – Americas service solutions, Ingersoll Rand. “We want to give customers a chance to share the stories behind the tools and air compressors that have been with them throughout the years. We will update the family scrapbook on a regular basis throughout the contest so that others can also see and read the stories and history behind these trusted products.”
