Daikin eyes expansion in India, Africa to drive growth

15 June, 2020

NEW DELHI, NNA – Japanese air conditioner giant Daikin Industries Ltd. is making headway in India and Africa with the build-out of a regional sales office in Nairobi and plans for a third manufacturing plant in the South Asian country that will serve the regions, a senior company official said.

The firm hopes to expand in markets from India into East Africa by exporting from its Indian subsidiary Daikin Airconditioning India Pvt. Ltd. The planned India factory expected to cover 50 to 60 acres would boost capacity to meet any requirements for growth regardless of economic impacts from the COVID-19 crisis.

“COVID-19 hasn’t dampened our investment interest as we continue to look for land to set up our third manufacturing facility in the country to cater to local and overseas markets including Africa where we are looking to expand our presence,” Daikin’s regional general manager, air conditioning business, India & East Africa, Kanwal Jeet Jawa, told NNA in an interview Saturday.
