Press Release, June 11th, 2018 

Daikin, global market leader for air conditioning units, is opening the company’s first flagship store in Central Europe on 23 March 2018 in Shopping City Süd (SCS). With this store, the air conditioning experts are responding to the growing demand of Austrians for professional air conditioning in their apartments and houses. The Daikin product range will be attractively presented in the shopping centre and visitors will be able to really experience the products. For the installation and maintenance of the air conditioning solutions – which are produced mostly in Europe – Daikin still relies on its certified professional partners.


Vienna, June 2018: “Our new flagship store concept recreates all relevant air conditioning areas in a real apartment or a real house – from the basement, the bathroom and the living room on to the bedroom. This means that, in the future, people interested in climate solutions can enjoy an authentic experience of how a Daikin air conditioning or heating unit will look in their own home and, with discreet and modern design solutions, how it will blend in perfectly in their personal living space,” explained Carl Lievens, Managing Director at Daikin Central Europe, on the occasion of the opening of the flagship store in the SCS. The new flagship store is a response to the growing desire for professional air conditioning in apartments and houses in the private sector and for the associated services. With this in mind, private customers have, for several years, also been looking increasingly for direct contact with the manufacturer so that they can find out about the ideal air conditioning solution for their own home. The range of products in the flagship store comprises split- and multi-split type air conditioners, heat pump systems and air purifiers. “We have high expectations for our new store concept. Together with our qualified Daikin partners, we therefore want to stimulate and shape the Austrian private air conditioning market. Austria is a very important market for Daikin,” explains Carl Lievens.
