Daikin opens high-tech centre in Adelaide

Daikin Australia has officially opened a new state-of-the-art facility in Adelaide, South Australia.

The opening ceremony was attended by Daikin dealers and key business partners involved in the development of the site. Daikin’s South Australia State Manager Matthew Tonkin; Daikin Australia Director – HR, Corporate Affairs and Service, Ian Hurley, Affil.AIRAH; and General Manager – Supply Chain Management & IT Michael Trad cut the ribbon and declared the Daikin Park Adelaide facility open.

With the Manhattan warehouse management system (WMS) at its core, the establishment’s operations are powered by state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge features that set it apart from traditional warehouses, says Daikin.

The new fulfillment and dispatch operations of the company’s finished goods and spare parts will also provide an efficient and seamless logistics solution for customers throughout South Australia, the company says.

According to Daikin, the site has four inbound docks with a capacity of 400,000 pieces inbound per year, and four outbound docks facilitating up to 5,000 truckloads annually to help streamline operations. The location also boasts a 250,000m3 outbound freight capacity per year.

“In addition to its warehousing capabilities, the new facility serves as a hub for customer convenience and professional development,” says Tonkin.

“The site also houses Daikin’s South Australian Sales team and the Daikin Trade Centre within its total size of 7,520m2, enabling swift and personalised assistance for customers in South Australia.

“Additionally, the location features a training academy, offering a range of expertly crafted training courses designed to elevate the skills and knowledge of air conditioning technicians.”

Daikin says the facility also boasts an array of environmentally friendly features, including a rainwater harvesting system that can collect 15,000L of rainwater for irrigation and toilet use.

“Energy-efficient fixtures and fittings, along with low-VOC carpet tiles, contribute to a reduced environmental footprint,” says Tonkin.

According to the company, the opening of Daikin Park Adelaide aligns with Daikin Australia’s expansion strategy and follows the opening of similar facilities in Melbourne and Brisbane.

“This demonstrates Daikin’s commitment to its valued dealers in the South Australian market,” says Tonkin. “Daikin’s expansion aims to achieve faster response times, improved inventory management, and ultimately elevate customer experiences nationwide.”
