Four Daikin products now officially bear the Australian Made certification.
“These Australian Made certifications are the first we’ve attained at Daikin, and it’s a very proud moment for us,” says Shaun Uehara, managing director of Daikin Australia. The company began manufacturing products in Australia in 1982.
Australian Made is a registered certification trademark that is Australia’s most trusted and recognised country of origin symbol. It uses a third-party accreditation system to ensure all products that carry the logo are certified as “genuinely Australian”.
“Our wish has always been to have our brand welcomed by the people of Australia,” says Uehara. “This is a key reason why we began local production in Australia 37 years ago.”
Australian Made’s campaign chief executive, Ben Lazzaro, says they are thrilled to welcome Daikin Australia into the Australian Made family.
“The Australian Made logo is the perfect addition to the Daikin Australia brand. It makes a powerful statement about the organisation’s commitment to the local manufacturing sector, job creation and the support of the local community,” he says.
Daikin Australia’s manufacturing manager, Nicholas MacDonald, says that the team worked hard to realise their goal. “It makes me really proud to see the ‘Australian Made’ logo on Daikin products as they roll off our assembly line,” he says.
The products that now display the Australian Made label include Daikin’s Ducted Indoor Units, High Static Pressure Indoor Ducted VRV Units, Low Static Pressure Indoor Ducted VRV Units and VRV Packaged Rooftop Air Conditioning Units.
