Executive Officer, Daikin Industries
General Manager, Technology and Innovation Center

The Technology and Innovation Center was established in November of 2015 to develop products and technologies with distinguishing qualities and impact for the sustainable growth and development of that Daikin Group.

Amid the rapidly changing business environment, we have cast aside the boundaries of “proprietary technology development” and eagerly embraced “collaborative innovation” to hone our core technologies and accelerate the development of products and technologies. In this way, we are striving toward business contribution to the Daikin Group and solutions to the issues affecting society.

Furthermore, as engineers ourselves, we actively visit the frontlines of global markets and actual sites with high aspirations and expertise and continue to exist as a group overflowing with vitality that insatiably creates innovation in new products, technology, and services.

We invite you to join us and take part in confronting new challenges together.
