AUSTRALIA: Daikin is to consolidate its business in Adelaide into a 7,580m2 office, warehouse and showroom space in the city’s Royal Park Distribution Centre.
The Japanese air conditioning manufacturer has taken a 10-year lease on the premises, which are situated 8.5km north-west of Adelaide’s central business district.
Quoted on the website of property investment company Centennial, Michael Trad, Daikin Australia’s general manager of supply chain and IT, said the company was drawn to Royal Park due to factors including geographical location, size and distribution capabilities. “The proximity to ports and Daikin customers presented us with a solution that would improve our effectiveness in the market.
“The investment to centralise our entire Adelaide business into one site will showcase a consolidation of the state sales and service offices; a new state-of-the-art training academy; trade and spare parts outlet, together with a Daikin operated warehouse housing Daikin Australia’s full product range of both Australian-made and imported products,” he added.
