A tour of Midea’s facilities in China

Nansha RAC Factory, Guangzhou

The Nansha factory specialises in the production of residential air conditioners and components. Despite being one of the smallest factories under Midea, it is fully automated and houses the most number of robots. Every day, the factory produces 22,000 coils for evaporator and condenser heat exchangers, 1,600 indoor units and 1,800 outdoor units, with a total production capacity of 550,000 sets per month.


Innovation Center and Headquarters, Guangzhou

Midea’s Innovation Centre houses the company’s latest development and the results of its R&D projects. The headquarters features cooling from Midea’s very own chillers and VRF systems. Not far away is the CAC Shunde Factory for the production of VRF and mini-VRF systems. The production facility is automated, with personnel facilitating testing for quality control. Each production line manufactures approximately 120-160 VRF units for the Chinese domestic market and for export.


Chiller Factory, Chongqing

The Chongqing chiller factory is home to large-tonnage chillers, magnetic chillers, inverter direct-drive centrifugal chillers, air-cooled screw chillers and water-cooled screw chillers. Compared to the fully automated RAC factory in Nansha, the Chongqing factory employs more highly specialised people, owing to the technical skills required for its more meticulous assembly.
