Mitsubishi to start Ecodan heat pump production in Scotland

MITSUBISHI Electric will start production of its Ecodan air-source heat pump system at its manufacturing plant in Livingston, Scotland, this September.
The ac manufacturer has invested in new testing facilities at the plant and plans to recruit more staff this year to manage the expected growth in Ecodan sales.

The Mitsubishi Electric Air Conditioning Systems Europe (M-ACE) site already employs 420 staff to manufacture air conditioning units for the firm's global market. It will adapt a production line to produce 3,000 Ecodan units a year for the UK and Europe.

'Although Ecodan is not an air conditioning unit, it shares much of the technology with our current Mr Slim models which are made in Livingston, so we are able to switch production with relative ease', said Yoshinori Miyata, general manager, Air-Conditioning & Refrigeration Systems division of Mitsubishi Electric.

'We will be looking to increase production to 10,000 units a year as demand increases', he added.
