Current societal challenges and Daikin Europe’s role as industry leader are in the focus of the newly issued activity report that offers a glimpse behind the scenes of the company’s growth story, its impact as solution provider and the ambitious 5-year strategic business plan Fusion25. The report covers key topics such as manufacturing, innovation, R&D, investments, customer centricity, sustainability or talent management.

 

Brussels, Vienna, July 2022 – Today, Daikin Europe brings around 5,800,000 cooling, heating, refrigeration and ventilation units  to the market per year. According to its proximity strategy around 82% of the equipment the group sells is made in 12 manufacturing sites in Europe and Turkey. Residential air-to-water heat pumps are 100% made in Europe. Producing locally enables the company to limit the environmental impact of logistics and make a significant contribution to local economies and communities. With a 25% growth in turnover in fiscal year 2021 (April 2021 – March 2022), Daikin Europe marked its 10th consecutive year of growth. In the same year, the company launched its 5-year strategic business plan Fusion25 that is the roadmap for future growth. The ambition is clear: Daikin intends to take the lead in offering low-carbon solutions in cooling, heating, ventilation and refrigeration.
