In addition, the sales, marketing and service activities of Daikin Airconditioning Germany GmbH and Rotex Heating Systems GmbH will be integrated from April 1 2020.
Rotex Heating Systems GmbH, a manufacturer of condensing boilers, floor heating systems and solar water heaters, was acquired by Daikin Europe NV in 2008.

Daikin says that the current Rotex production site in Güglingen, will develop in the coming years and continues to be a key part of Daikin Europe’s production network.
“Thanks to the integration, we bring together Daikin’s world leading HVAC expertise with Rotex’s 46 years of heating experience. This will bring benefits to our customers and our employees,” De Graeve said.
