TOKYO — Mitsubishi Electric Corp. announced that it has begun producing the indoor units of commercial air conditioners for the North American market at Mitsubishi Electric US Inc.’s wholly owned subsidiary company, PIMS, S.A. de C.V., located in Baja California, Mexico.

The company said this is its latest move to expand its air conditioning business in North America through a locally integrated framework for development, production, and sales. Mitsubishi Electric stated that PIMS reflects its commitment to the U.S. market.

PIMS is headed by Minoru Ogawa and has approximately 60 employees.

To better meet market needs while strengthening operational efficiencies, Mitsubishi Electric expanded warehouse space and placed several offices and its engineering center under one roof near Atlanta in April. It also has upgraded engineering functions by developing and testing products in the United States.
