Toshiba Carrier Corporation consolidates its position in Europe and establishes a new manufacturing subsidiary in Gniezno, Poland. Toshiba Corporation and Carrier Corporation agreed on a joint venture on the heating, ventilating and airconditioning (HVAC) market which will invest approximately 3.0 billion Japanese yen in this subsidiary to enhance its business foundation and presence in Europe. The new manufacturing subsidiary is scheduled to start its operation before the end of 2020.

The growth of HVAC in Europe

Europe has seen sound HVAC growth for the last three years (2016 – 2018) with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) over 6%(*1), and is expected to enjoy sustainable growth driven by solid demands for energy-efficient HVAC products to address environmental concerns and legislation. Europe is also witnessing a recent surge in sales of heating and hot water supply equipment using heat pumps, or air to water (ATW) equipment as an alternative for heating and hot water supply equipment using gas and other conventional boilers.

The new manufacturing facility will allow Toshiba Carrier to reduce product lead time by one-third, reduce product cost, and bolster its product lineup catering to particular needs in Europe. Poland’s quality workforce, proximity to Western European nations and attractive investment incentives are the major factors for Toshiba Carrier to locate its first European manufacturing base in the country.

A global presence

The establishment of the new subsidiary will boost Toshiba Carrier’s global manufacturing and engineering portfolio, which includes on-going programs such as a new global R&D center at Fuji Operations and the relocation and expansion of development and manufacturing facilities at Toshiba Carrier Air Conditioning (China) Co., Ltd., in Hangzhou, China. With these proactive investment initiatives inside and outside Japan and its long-standing alliance with Carrier Corporation, Toshiba Carrier strives to capitalize opportunities in order to better serve customers with better solutions and further grow globally.
