Artisan Mid Cap Fund made the following comment about Ingersoll Rand Inc. (NYSE:IR) in its Q3 2023 investor letter:

"Notable trims in the quarter included Zscaler, BioNTech and Ingersoll Rand Inc. (NYSE:IR). Ingersoll Rand is a global market leader in a broad range of mission-critical flow creation technologies (pumps, compressors, etc.) for industrial and medical applications. Recent earnings results beat expectations and revealed strong orders, margins and earnings. Notably, orders within its industrial segment were particularly strong, driven by double-digit growth in compressors, vacuums and blowers. We also continue to be impressed by management’s handling of acquisition integration, marketing lead generation, new product development and employee engagement. We are cognizant of near-term cyclical industrial risks, but we also think Ingersoll’s compressed air technologies will remain in demand as customers seek to reduce energy and water usage and generate fewer emissions. With the stock’s valuation having expanded, we modestly reduced the position in favor of earlier stage investments."
