Daikin Middle East and Africa has opened a new 7,500-square-meter regional headquarters in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone in support of its growth plans for the region.
The new facility will be the base of operations for 250 employees and combines a training academy, AHU factory and flagship experience center. The office also features an array of new technological HVAC innovations including a chiller system, smart VRV system, along with AHU, FCU & BMS systems.
The opening reaffirms Daikin's commitment to long-term business expansion, and emphasizes to the market that the company believes in both the growth potential of the MEA region and the vision of the UAE, said Tuna Gulenc, Daikin MEA’s vice president-sales.
Daikin’s first office was established in Dubai 13 years ago. Since then, the business has grown from USD 30 million to exceed USD 300 million to become a fully fledged headquarters with sales, service, logistics, and manufacturing operations. Companies have been established in the UAE, KSA, and Egypt with a sales network across the MEA region. Daikin MEA now employs more than 400 people from just 10 originally.
