Daikin has relocated the head office for the company’s Middle East & Africa Division in line with plans to support growth and expand throughout the region.
Located in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone, the facility will be the base of operations for 250 staff members across sales and operational departments.
The HQ will home Daikin’s training academy, AHU factory and flagship experience centre.
Needless to say, the office of the air conditioning manufacturer features an array of technological HVAC innovations including a chiller system, smart VRV system, along with AHU, FCU and BMS systems.
“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,” said Tuna Gulenc, vice president of sales at Daikin MEA.
“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.”
Since first opening its doors in the Middle East 13 years ago, Daikin has grown its MEA market share to around $300million.
Having employed 10 people at its inception, Daikin now has 400 people on its books.
