Nidec restructures after Embraco aquisition

Since acquiring Embraco in 2019, Nidec Global Appliance has reorganized its operations into three business units, focused on segments: home appliances, commercial appliances and HVAC.

Nidec Global Appliance, a division of the Nidec Group has divided into three business units: Home Appliances, Commercial Appliances and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning). The change was implemented throughout the last year as a further step after Embraco’s acquisition, having the goal to operate with a more dedicated focus on the specific market segments in which the division is present, increasing speed and customer focus. 

  • The Commercial Appliances business unit is focused on the manufacturing of compressors and condensing units to a great variety of commercial applications, which are present in supermarkets, convenience stores, bakeries, restaurants, laboratories, hospitals and others. With a diversified portfolio of segments served, the business unit stands out for its capacity to deliver solutions with high levels of energy efficiency, reliability and innovation.
  • HVAC  manufactures motors and components to residential and commercial applications in heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems.
  • The Home Appliances business unit is dedicated to the development and manufacturing of motors for washing machines, dryers and dishwashers as well as compressors for refrigerators, in both cases exclusively to domestic applications. It counts on expert teams in each kind of product, with a deep know-how in technologies, regional technical requirements and energy efficiency regulations, ready to respond to the different needs of the world’s biggest appliances manufacturers.

“This reorganization into three business units was fundamental to maximise our operation, with a focus totally dedicated to our customers and their market segments. Our vision is to be the main partner to residential and commercial appliances industries and HVAC systems providers,”, said Valter Taranzano, chief executive of Nidec Global Appliance.

In July 2019, Nidec Corporation acquired Embraco, a global provider of refrigeration technology to the whole domestic and commercial cold chain since 1971. Since the acquisition, Embraco was then integrated into Nidec Global Appliance (GA) division, which is one of Nidec’s growth platforms, combining the synergies among the group’s brands and products dedicated to residential and commercial appliances.
