MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill. — Daikin, a manufacturer of air conditioning equipment, is making a big investment in education through a major sponsorship of the HVAC Excellence National HVACR Education Conference. This annual event allows HVACR educators, trainers, and other professionals to gather and learn about new and emerging technologies, get answers from, and be inspired by industry leaders, exchange ideas with industry peers, while gaining a better understanding of the future of the HVACR industry.

Daikin envisions a society where people and space are healthier and more comfortable, while reducing the environmental impact. To this end, Daikin realized that to achieve these goals, they needed to invest in educating the HVACR workforce, which begins with their sponsorship of the National HVACR Education Conference. Daikin has supported career and technical education around the globe, and has received the Award for Excellence at the Career Education Awards sponsored by the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry of Japan. Through their sponsorship of the National HVACR Education Conference, Daikin is making an investment in the North American workforce.

According to Jeff Bledsoe, contractor development manager at Daikin Comfort Technologies, "It’s not about making an immediate sale, it’s about building a pipeline of qualified technicians in the marketplace. This helps the industry across the board, so the end customers enjoy the comfort of our equipment. This is also improving the education across the industry as a whole. As the number one HVAC manufacturer in the world we view this as part of our commitment to the industry. We are also extremely proud to be able to provide those resources and assistance to those who want and need it." 

“Statistics illustrate that technology is growing at a faster rate today, than at anytime in the past. Experts predict that this trend will continue, with the HVACR industry being among those that will see the most change," added Jerry Weiss, chairman, HVAC Excellence. "To remain current and relevant in an ever-changing industry, everyone must continue to adapt and learn. With Daikin taking a leading role, HVAC Excellence and our industry partners will be able to do more at the National HVACR Education Conference to help everyone involved in the education process become more effective in their roles.”
