Panasonic Australia and Pacific Ventilation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Systemair Group, have announced they will work together to market a large-scale commercial air conditioning and ventilation solution.
Locally, the first stage of the collaboration will see Panasonic Australia and Pacific Ventilation work together to market Pacific Ventilation’s indoor DX air handling units and Panasonic’s variable refrigerant flow (FSV) outdoor units. Panasonic says this is in line with its strategic partnership with Systemair AB Group, which seeks to leverage existing technology and expertise from both parties to create bespoke project solutions.
The solution is designed for applications such as shopping centres, large grocery stores and hospitals.
“Infinitely scalable, as a project or commercial site evolves and grows, the VRF DX-AHU solution scales up or down as needed,” says Panasonic. “All units come with plug-and-play smart technology and can be monitored onsite or remotely across multiple locations.”
Tomoki Miyamoto, Affil.AIRAH, Country Head, Air Conditioning, Panasonic Australia, has pointed to the opportunities the deal will create.
“This opens up a new line of business for Panasonic,” says Miyamoto, “and we are excited to be working together to satisfy customers’ growing requirements for ventilation solutions in the large commercial sector.”
Pacific Ventilation Managing Director Peter Gibson, Affil.AIRAH, has also hailed the partnership.
“This new offering reflects the engineering excellence of two companies dedicated to improving people’s lives through cleaner, safer air,” says Gibson. “As a subsidiary of Systemair AB Group, we are in a unique position to support this market space with many design options and solutions for customers to choose from. Worldwide, Systemair AB Group has a powerful presence in the AHU market. By working with Panasonic Australia, we extend the Group’s capacity to provide best-in-class solutions to the Australia and New Zealand region.”
