Daikin Reefer opens ME spare parts centre

Daikin-reeferDUBAI: Daikin Reefer, the Japanese manufacturer’s container refrigeration equipment subsidiary, has opened a new spare parts centre in Dubai.

The new facility, in Jebel Ali Free Zone, will be managed by long-term partner and leading reefer servicing operator IRS International (IRSI). It is believed to be the first such official manufacturer’s parts centre in the region.

Daikin Reefer has previously been reliant on 20 Daikin authorised repairers located across the 15 main ports of the Middle East.


Commenting on the new spare parts center, Daikin Reefer president Shin Furuta said: “The Middle East is increasingly becoming a prominent container market. As with our other regional spare parts centres, our Dubai centre will stock all the major spare parts used and will be able to make these available to customers quickly and efficiently when required.”

Daikin Reefer hopes that the establishment of this new spare parts centre will be welcomed by its customers, particularly shipping lines and repairers who have previously highlighted the need for a satellite parts centre, in a bid to drive down delivery costs and improve the overall supply chain.
