Danfoss opens office in Saudi Arabia

SAUDI ARABIA: Danfoss has announced the opening of its first technical support office in Saudi Arabia.

The Danish HVAC manufacturer has been operating in Saudi Arabia for over 50 years through distributers and agents. It has previously been associated with many projects in the Kingdom including airports, seaports, hospitals, and financial districts to increase the energy efficiency of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning sector, as well as refrigeration and other industrial systems.

Its new office in Jeddah is seen as a clear signal of Danfoss’ continued commitment to Saudi Arabia, an increasingly important market.

Offering local customer service and technical support, it will also help Danfoss support Saudi efforts to reach its 2030 vision through providing innovative and sustainable solutions for the cooling, heating and industrial sectors
