SUWANEE, Ga., November 28, 2011 - Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating (Mitsubishi Electric) announced today the opening of an industry-first Engineering Center in Duluth, Ga. The Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating Engineering Center is the only dedicated facility in the United States geared toward developing split-ductless and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology solutions specifically for the North American market.
"Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating's parent corporation, Mitsubishi Electric, Tokyo, realizes there is enormous potential in the North American market for products based on split-ductless and VRF technology," says Bill Rau, senior vice president and general manager, Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating. "The Engineering Center will give Mitsubishi Electric a serious competitive advantage, as we can develop split-ductless and VRF technologies more closely aligned with the unique needs of American customers."
The Engineering Center, which opened on April 1, 2011, houses Mitsubishi Electric application support, as well as the company industry and government relations departments. By housing these groups in a single building, Mitsubishi Electric can accelerate domestic product development.
