THAILAND: Fujitsu has opened a new JPY2bn (€17m) air conditioning R&D centre in Chonburi province, Thailand.
The thee-storey, 10,000m² facility has been built on land adjacent to the company’s existing factory. It can accommodate more than 200 engineers and complements Fujitsu’s product development facilities in Japan and China.
As well as R&D responsibilities, the new building will also function as the verification test facility for large-size commercial air conditioners.
The new facility supports Fujitsu’s aim to double the number of development models and make a similar increase in local engineers in the next five years.
