Daikin Applied plans new AHU plant in Tijuana

USA: Commercial and industrial HVAC manufacturer Daikin Applied is to build a new custom HVAC and computer room AHU manufacturing facility in Tijuana, Mexico. 

The new facility will support sustainable data centre growth across North America. It will be built in partnership with Alliance Air Products, the San-Diego-based custom air handling equipment design and manufacturing company it acquired last year.

The new 460,000ft2 facility will expand on Daikin Applied and Alliance Air’s established presence in Tijuana. It will be used to manufacture custom HVAC and computer room air handler equipment and solutions. 

Daikin says that this expanded facility allows the company to better serve customers in the west and southwest United States and Mexico with a single supplier for end-to-end HVAC solutions.   

The new $121m facility is expected to support over 1,000 production jobs and over 1,150 total new permanent jobs. Construction of the facility is expected to be complete by spring 2025 with production ramping up in June 2025.
