Dubai, UAE: Daikin has announced that its air-handling unit (AHU) factory, started in December 2014 in Jebel Ali, to serve both local and regional markets from the GCC region, Middle East & Africa (MEA), is now Eurovent certified.

The factory has gone through many metamorphoses in the last 11 months, said Daikin, and elaborated that the first major step was moving into a new larger facility in April 2015, providing more flexibility and the ability to manufacture machines worth more than USD one million per month. Approximately, a month later, the ISO 9001 certification procedure was reportedly completed – a prerequisite for the Eurovent certification.

The factory has also invested in its own testing equipment, Daikin said, allowing the demonstration of compliance to the EN1886 standard for volumetric testing, leakage testing, and mechanical strength testing to its customers.

“The basis for the unit design follows the Professional Air Handling Unit design in our factory in Milan, Italy,” said Kilian Kelly, Regional Business Director of Air Side Products in Daikin MEA. “While following the design and processes from our factory in Italy, we had access to a wide range of options and best practices in the construction of the units, providing our customers with products that have the highest quality. With the Middle East becoming more concerned with energy efficiency, selecting the Professional series as our preferred product gives our customers access to all the energy-efficient features available to Eurovent-certified units with a fan array.”

About the unit in Jebel Ali, Kelly said, “Locating the factory in Jebel Ali has reduced the company’s lead times, providing our customers with a better service and response time to not only deliver quickly and on time but also provide any additional backup or aftersales services they should wish to avail of.”
