After the successful construction of Taiwan Hitachi Subic, Inc. in 1995, it started manufacturing premium air conditioning equipment, exported to various countries in Southeast Asia and the Middle East. Its main operation only includes production and export.
In the year 2000 Hitachi released the demand for air conditioning units locally, thus giving birth to a local sales office known as Hitachi Air Conditioning Sales (Phils.) Inc. It’s been 20 years since Hitachi has emerged to serve the domestic market. Various product lines added up to its list to offer to the air conditioning needs of the Filipinos.
In 2005, the local assembly plant in Subic Bay and the Manila sales office merged and became Hitachi Air Conditioning Products (Phils.) Inc. to expand its operations.
Aside from residential air conditioners, industrial air conditioning equipment was introduced to the Philippine market for large applications such as high rise buildings, factories, process cooling and other industrial applications.
In 2015, Hitachi Applications, Inc. in Japan and Johnson Controls, Inc. in the U.S. entered in a joint venture and became Johnson Controls-Hitachi (JCH). The local company in the Philippines became Johnson Controls-Hitachi Air Conditioning Philippines, Inc.
The two 100 plus year-old companies joined together sharing its rich cultures and histories to create a dynamic company serving its valued customers with the most diverse product portfolio and services in the air conditioning industry. The company aims to contribute the-line products by bringing down power consumption and help conserve energy.
Hitachi vision: 2020 is clear!
“As a bigger better and more customer-centric air conditioning products company, we keep abreast with the latest in technology while staying focused on our market’s ever-changing needs…” (PR)
