Masanori Togawa, President and CEO of Daikin Industries, Ltd. said, “We have about 100 production units globally and a customer base in over 170 countries, but India holds a special significance. As we expand our manufacturing footprint in India, we reemphasize the importance of India in Daikin’s global vision. The country's dynamic market and skilled workforce align perfectly with our mission, and we are confident that the new facility will not only elevate the standard of HVAC solutions but also contribute significantly to the growth of the industry in India and the surrounding regions.”

This expansion marks a pivotal moment in our journey, poised to make a significant contribution to Daikin's continued success in the country and fostering long-term partnerships that drive mutual success. In addition, Daikin holds the distinction of being the primary investor in the government's Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme, actively championing the drive for domestic manufacturing of air conditioners."

In addition to the newly established Sri City plant, Daikin intends to export products from its production bases in India to neighboring Asian countries, the Middle East, Africa, and other regions with similar climate conditions. By promoting use of air conditioners with high energy efficiency and mitigated environmental impact in India, Daikin will accelerate its efforts to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, while providing many people with healthy and comfortable air environments.
