Mitsubishi celebrates 30 years at Livingston

UK: Mitsubishi Electric celebrated the 30th anniversary of its factory in Livingston and the factory’s production of its five-millionth product at a special event last week.

Established in 1993, the Livingston plant has been manufacturing air conditioning units for 30 years and producing heat pumps for installation across the UK and Europe since 2009. Today, it is the largest heat pump manufacturer in the UK, employing 1,840 people.

To mark the occasion, Mitsubishi Electric hosted an anniversary event at the factory on Thursday July 6. Key government and industry figures attended including Patrick Harvie, Scottish minister for zero carbon buildings, Hannah Bardell, UK MP for Livingston, and Tadashi Fujiwara, the consul general of Japan in Edinburgh.

With support from Scottish Enterprise and continued investment by Mitsubishi Electric, which included £15.3m in 2021, has seen the Livingston factory expand and grow its heat pump production.

Alongside the 30th anniversary, Mitsubishi Electric also marked the factory’s production of its five-millionth product – the new Ecodan R290 air source heat pump for residential buildings.
