RUSSIA: Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has established an operation in Russia to support its air conditioning business in the region.

Mitsubishi Electric (Russia) LLC will now act as the comprehensive sales company for Russia and the surrounding countries with a focus on further strengthening the air conditioning, factory automation and other businesses in the region.

Through its new business Mitsubishi Electric sees itself being better placed to provide a localised sales team, technical support and after service, which will lead to a significantly improved customer service for clients. It is targeting a €73m turnover in 2016.

“Russia is an important market for Mitsubishi Electric, so setting up our local entity, Mitsubishi Electric (Russia) LLC, was the next logical step,” said Noritsugu Uemura, the Russian company’s president.

“Our Moscow headquarters and teams in St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg will focus on further growing our air conditioning, factory automation and also other businesses, for example in the infrastructure sector, in Russia and the surrounding countries.”
