Company aiming to ‘enhance leadership, visibility and product offerings to meet increasing customer demands’
HVAC-R specialist Daikin says relocating its Middle East and Africa (MEA) is “in line with plans to support growth and expand throughout the region”.
Located in JAFZA-Dubai, the new 22,000sqm facility will be home its 250 sales and operational staff, as well as warehousing, a training academy, AHU Factory and the company’s flagship experience center.
Daikin also features an array of typically advanced HVAC systems including a chiller system, smart VRV system, along with AHU, FCU & BMS systems.
“The opening of this brand-new facility reaffirms our commitment for long-term business expansion, and emphasizes to the market that we believe in both the growth potential of the MEA region and vision of the UAE,” said Tuna Gulenc, VP-Sales, Daikin MEA.
Daikin first established a regional office 13 years ago with turnover expanding from $30 million to over $300 million in the MEA region. Today, Daikin MEA employs more than 400 people and has established companies in the UAE, KSA and Egypt.
Gulenc added: “Daikin MEA has grown to become the market leader in the region, and this has been made possible by the dedication and commitment demonstrated by our trusted employees and partners on a daily basis over a long period of time. Daikin believes in continuous development once we enter a market. We are building a company that will last one hundred years and more to serve our customers, employ and train more colleagues, and further contribute to our society, environment and planet. Our responsibility is to promote efficient systems to save energy through the various products and solutions, as well as to create careers and job openings in each country we operate in. The launch of the new facility is the latest step of this project and we look ahead to the coming years with strong desire, faith in the potential of the region and our company. We will continue to execute our strategic plans and actions accordingly as we pursue our dream in this region.”
