Daikin Europe has been investing heavily in heat pump technology R&D over the last 2 decades.
Daikin Europe N.V. has announced a 50 million euro investment in its heat pump factory in Brno, the Czech Republic. It will further boost the company’s European manufacturing capacity to meet growing demand for sustainable heating solutions and contribute to the much needed energy transition.
- Daikin Europe invests 50 million euro in Daikin Device Czech Republic
- Five-fold increase in production capacity by 2025 aiming to meet growing demand for heat pumps on the European market
- The investment will create at least 500 new jobs in the region of Brno, to be filled before 2025
The investment in the Czech Republic will go to the construction of an additional factory building and new production lines. It follows earlier investments to strengthen Daikin’s manufacturing bases in Europe, with major expansions of its plants in Belgium and Germany, along with the establishment of a brand-new factory in Poland by 2024.
Daikin Europe has been investing heavily in heat pump technology R&D over the last 2 decades. The Daikin Altherma range, launched in 2006, quickly became the market reference for residential heat pumps. Since then, Daikin has developed a broad heat pump portfolio, offering solutions for almost any application.
The investment underlines Daikin Europe’s growth ambitions, which will also be accompanied by a strong growth of its workforce. Today, the company already has over 12,000 employees working in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). To achieve the ambitious targets in its strategic management plan ‘Fusion 25’, the company is looking to recruit another 5,000 people by 2025.
