Hitachi restructures air conditioning in Europe

Hitachi has set up a new company in Europe to incorporate all activities for air-conditioning products. Hitachi Air Conditioning Europe SAS covers sales, manufacture and service operations across Europe. The air-conditioning business in Europe previously operated as two entities, with manufacturing in Barcelona and other operations run from the central office in Velizy, Paris β€” with additional sales offices covering major European territories.

The new Hitachi Air Conditioning Europe combines these operations under one management and leadership team, providing a stable platform for growing market penetration and share across a wide spectrum of products.

Kenichi Munakata, president of the new company, said, β€˜It represents a considerable investment and highlights our commitment to the European market as a whole. Whilst the operations will not change from a geographical standpoint, this unification of our businesses will deliver further benefits to ultimately leverage the economies of scale and scope that such a change will deliver.’
