Daikin expands in Germany

GERMANY: Daikin has continued to expand its coverage in Germany with a new branch in Leingarten, near Heilbronn, Baden-Württemberg.

The new building, which replaces the current facility in nearby Güglingen, covers 3,000m2 and extends over three floors. It is said to offer plenty of space for offices, meeting rooms and showrooms. An Experience Center will also be opened at the new location.

The premises in Güglingen remain in place and will be used by Daikin Manufacturing Germany GmbH in the future. Güglingen is an important Daikin heat pump production site and an important part of Daikin Europe’s 2025 plan to meet growing demand for heat pumps in Europe.

The 84 Güglingen employees will move the 20km to the new facility this month.
