Through the supply of products with exceptional appeal that complement the life styles of each region, Daikin promotes a production strategy of market proximity in which products are manufactured at global locations close to the market and the needs of the customers. In 1972, Daikin established a European production facility in Belgium and has increased production corresponding to business expansion. Production facilities were also built in the large air conditioning markets of the United States and China. Since then, we have shifted focus to Asia where demand is expanding and have built factories in Thailand, India, Malaysia, and Vietnam. With a global production system in place, we can perform optimum sales and timely delivery to all regions of the world.
