Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has commenced production in the new factory of Mitsubishi Electric Turkey Klima Sistemleri Üretim Anonim Sirketi, designed for the development and manufacture of room air conditioners (RAC). The company aims to expand business in Turkey and Europe, where the demands for RAC are expected to increase. Annual production of 500,000 sets (indoor and outdoor units) is targeted by the fiscal year ending March 2021. The new factory is located at Manisa Organized Industrial Zone, Manisa, Turkey, with the site area of approximately 60,000 square meters and floor area of approximately 40,000 square meters.
Mitsubishi Electric’s air conditioning and refrigeration-systems business in Europe is expanding steadily and the demand in Turkey expected to increase in line with the country’s economic and population growth. The new factory is expected to play a key role in accelerating localization to ensure a flexible supply chain capable of responding to fluctuating demands and meeting specific local market, preferences, and environmental requirements in both Turkey and Europe.
