World’s #1, Daikin Changes its Name, But Not Its Mission

The world’s largest heating, ventilation, and air conditioning company, Daikin, has a new name, but its mission to remain a forward-thinking leader in environmental solutions is unchanged. 

The Daikin products organization, including Daikin ductless and light commercial systems (including VRV) in North America, is unifying its core Daikin, Goodman and Amana HVAC brands.

“We are uniting under a single name – Daikin Comfort Technologies – capturing a culture and identity that reflects one vision that will create an even stronger and more unified Daikin,” explained Satoru Akama, Chief Executive Officer for Daikin. The name change and new organization structure become effective April 1, 2022.

“By fusing Daikin’s strengths, core technologies and environmental solutions with Goodman’s robust, extensive sales and distribution network we will enrich our customer experience, improve organizational efficiency and transform the North American HVAC market by promoting environmental solutions that impact people where they live, work, and play.” Within Daikin Comfort Technologies, a newly formed group is now emerging , the Environmental Promotion Office. This team will intensify Daikin’s focus on becoming the industry leader as an advanced environmental company.

“We are leveraging Daikin’s leadership in environmentally friendly indoor comfort technologies, such as our inverter and heat pump solutions.” 

Daikin has already introduced low global warming potential (GWP) R-32 products ahead of competitors and taken a leadership role in environmental stewardship. This new unit will facilitate wider usage of inverter, heat pump and R-32 products throughout North America.

“We look forward to further sharing our mission to become the most environmentally advanced HVAC company in North America.”

Daikin recently announced that it has suspended business in Russia in consideration of the current situation of economics, logistics and others. Daikin Europe is to donate €1m to the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to support humanitarian aid to the people in Ukraine and those suffering displacement as a result of the conflict.
