The 17,700sqm factory is situated in approximately 37,000sqm of land and manufactures commercial air conditioning, heating, and air-to-water equipment for Europe. Toshiba Carrier now has six HVAC equipment manufacturing bases with two in Japan, and one each in Thailand, China, and India. The Europe HVAC division continues to grow, driven by solid demands for energy-efficient HVAC products to address various environmental goals and regulations in each country. Europe is also witnessing strong sales of heating and hot water supply equipment using heat pumps, or air-to-water (ATW) equipment as an alternative for heating and hot water supply equipment using gas and other conventional boilers.
The new manufacturing base is expected to allow Toshiba Carrier to reduce product lead-times and bolster its product lineup catering to particular needs in Europe, and as a result boost sales of Toshiba-brand products and its business growth outside Japan.
“It is a great pleasure to announce the start of shipments from TCAE, thanks to the warm support we have received from the local community”, said Toru Kubo, president and chief executive of Toshiba Carrier. “Our aim is to contribute to environmental sustainability through our heat pump technologies as well as contribute to the local community through our business operations at TCAE.”
Leveraging its technologies and products, Toshiba Carrier strives to capitalise opportunities for its business growth, better serve customers with better solutions, and continue its contribution to environmental sustainability.
