Who Makes Mitsubishi Air Conditioners?
The Mitsubishi Group includes around 40 individual companies working in a variety of industries, from information technology to developing concessions in coal and iron. It originates from the Mitsubishi zaibatsu company, which existed from 1870 to 1947. Each company comprising the Mitsubishi Group has shares of other Mitsubishi companies. Mitsubishi air conditioners are made by one of the core companies of the Group, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation. It was founded on 15 January 1921.
Mitsubishi’s first effort to make indoor life more comfortable dates back to 1921, when an electric fan was created. It enjoyed an incredible success. About a decade later the company started to manufacture coolers. Mitsubishi air conditioner division was established in 1954. The same year the company started manufacturing room ACs and created wall-mounted split-type air conditioner – the first AC of this type in Japan. Two years later, the first open type condensing unit appeared. A pressure ventilation fan was developed by 1961, and in two years the industry-first semi-hermetic type condensing unit was designed.
During the 1960s and the 1970s Mitsubishi introduced air curtain, chilling units, Kirigamine air conditioners, a ceiling-mounted split AC (first in Japan), duct exhaust fan, Lossnay heat-exchange ventilation system, Japan’s quietest and lightest AC, as well as the world’s thinnest AC and heat pump. One of the most notable achievements of this period was the Okochi Memorial Commemoration Prize award.
Some of the achievements of the 2000s include the industry-first multiple-sensor control, G-50 IT-based control and monitoring system, as well as the world’s first AC capable of curbing generation of active oxygen.
Mitsubishi air conditioner range
The range includes a multiple series line-up of room ACs. Most of them are inverter-equipped models, but there are also constant-speed, floor-standing and cassette models. The range of package ACs includes two series: S series (two types of indoor units) and P series (eight indoor units and four series of outdoor units), thus allowing to create a system that best matches individual needs. Also, Mitsubishi air conditioner range includes powerful heating systems, energy recovery ventilators, as well as small and large multi systems.
Mitsubishi Electric logo
Back in the 1870s the company, which was the precursor of Mitsubishi, used a triangular water chestnut as its emblem. It was derived from the family crests of the company’s founders. In 1985 the “Blue MITSUBISHI” corporate brand logo was designed. Since 2001, the company uses the “MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC” logo outside Japan, which should distinguish the corporation from other companies of the Group.
