Daikin Airconditioning India established a third manufacturing plant in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh, marking significant growth and commitment to India’s air conditioning market while promoting energy-efficient solutions for global regions.

Daikin Airconditioning India Pvt. Ltd., a subsidiary of Daikin Industries, Ltd., opens a cutting-edge air conditioning manufacturing plant in Andhra Pradesh. The Sri City plant marks Daikin’s third significant manufacturing facility in India, in addition to its two existing factories in Neemrana, Rajasthan, in the northern part of the country. Here, Daikin produces residential air conditioners and crucial compressor components for air conditioning units. This new factory represents a substantial expansion of Daikin’s production capacity in India, aiming to satisfy the growing local need for air conditioners while supporting the sustainable development of the Indian air conditioning market by providing energy-efficient products.

Kanwal Jeet Jawa, Chairman and Managing Director of Daikin India, commented, “With this factory, Daikin’s production capacity receives a substantial boost, further solidifying our commitment to growth in India. This expansion marks a pivotal moment in our journey, poised to significantly contribute to Daikin’s continued success in the country and foster long-term partnerships that drive mutual success. In addition, Daikin is the primary investor in the government’s Production Linked Incentive scheme, actively championing the drive for domestic manufacturing of air conditioners.”

Masanori Togawa, President and CEO of Daikin Industries, Ltd. said, “We have about 100 production units globally and a customer base in over 170 countries, but India holds a special significance. As we expand our manufacturing footprint in India, we reemphasize the importance of India in Daikin’s global vision. The country’s dynamic market and skilled workforce align perfectly with our mission, and we are confident that the new facility will elevate the standard of HVAC solutions and contribute significantly to the growth of the industry in India and the surrounding regions.”

Daikin set ‘Establishment of a Major Base in India’ as one of the key management themes of its strategic management plan, FUSION25. In addition to the newly established Sri City plant, Daikin intends to export products from its production bases in India to neighbouring Asian countries, the Middle East, Africa, and other regions with similar climate conditions. By promoting the use of air conditioners with high energy efficiency and mitigating environmental impact in India, Daikin will accelerate its efforts to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 while providing many people with healthy and comfortable air environments.
