Who are Daikin?





Daikin are currently the world leaders in Air Conditioning technology. They originate from Japan, Asia. They now have many production facilities in the world such as Belgium, Germany and the USA. Daikin are well known for the production of the famous VRV system which is actually patented. Other systems from other brands use the VRF technology which is virtually the same however under different name. Daikin Industries Ltd was founded in 1924 as Osaka Kinzoku Kogyosho by Akira Yamada. Daikin entered the North American air conditioning market in 2004 as a multi national conglomerate company.

In 2006, Daikin Industries acquired McQuay International, a Minneapolis, MN based global corporation that designs, manufacturers and sells commercial, industrial and institutional heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) products, and in November of the same year, purchased OYL industries. These acquisitions made Daikin Industries, a major global HVAC manufacturer, rivaling Carrier Corporation in total number of products produced, total dollar volume and worldwide territory coverage.

In the year 2008, McQuay  was fashioned as Daikin-Mc Quay as Daikin began implementing many of its technology (including the Daikin Inverter) and manufacturing processes into McQuay equipment and factories. However, in November 2013, the Daikin-McQuay group was again re-branded as Daikin Applied, ending 80 years of business for the Mc Quay name.
