First Daikin VRV Unit Assembled at Daikin Texas Technology Park

Daikin North America LLC's new 4 million-square-foot campus, located outside Northwest Houston, welcomed the first VRV unit off the production line during a celebration in January, 2017.

Daikin VRV technology is not entirely new to North America. Daikin introduced VRV units in 2005 with products imported from Japan and Europe. In February 2014, Daikin operated assembly lines for VRV outdoor units in North America with limited production in Houston. Now, with the opening of Daikin's new state-of-the-art campus in Waller, Texas, the production of current VRV units as well as the development of new product designs will increase productivity drastically by 22 percent. Lead time will also decrease substantially in order to respond to customer demand.

When fully operational, Daikin Texas Technology Park will manufacture Daikin branded products, including ducted and ductless HVAC systems forcommercial applications.
