80 YEAR HISTORY
Our initial business began in 1938 and an HVAC division was established in 1978 as Inaba Denko. Our company has maintained an independent operation and the largest market share in Japan since its founding.
Our global network has expanded from Japan to North America, Asia, Oceania, the Middle East, Europe and Africa over the years. We have seen continued sales achievements worldwide.
We have gained a wealth of knowledge and expertise in ductless air conditioning in order to compete in the Japanese market, the birthplace of ductless system, and to expand globally.
Engineering process in design and development is centralized in Japan and customized at each manufacturing location. Quality is dually controlled by the headquarters and each manufacturing location.
STABILITY and CONTINUITY
We maintain dispersive manufacturing strategy for stable supply and business continuity. That includes three company factories in Japan and one in Thailand as well as partner factories throughout Asia.
We efficiently manage global logistics through our corporate factories and our partners’ warehouses. We utilize distribution centers of our channel partners in the U.S. for faster delivery.
