December 22, 2011
SUWANEE, Ga. — Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating has announced the opening of a new Engineering Center in Duluth, Ga. The company said 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,” said 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 houses Mitsubishi Electric application support, as well as the company’s industry and government relations departments. By housing these groups in a single building, Mitsubishi Electric said it can accelerate domestic product development.

“This center represents the first of many steps Mitsubishi Electric is taking to solidify a stronghold in the North American marketplace,” said Rau. “The company is committed to providing the American market with exactly what they need to live better and more comfortably.”
