Marcus Perleberg and Natasha Wedl chat with Dennis Stinson of Fujitsu General chatting about the newer technology of ductless air conditioning. Who doesn't want an easy way to stay cool during the summer, and warm during the winter? Natasha is so amped up about this technology that she is interviewing HVAC companies near her to see if she can get ductless technology installed in her own home!
For over 40 years, Fujitsu General has been working hard to make the world a more comfortable place. We have produced and shipped millions of air conditioning systems throughout the world to make the hottest places cool and the coolest places comfortable.
Fujitsu General has been in the air conditioner business since 1960, when we introduced our first-generation window-mounted cooler for home in Japan. In 1971, we started marketing air conditioners in Kuwait, where outdoor temperature tops 50℃ (122℉) during the day and a cloud of dust looms over towns. In this challenging environment, our air conditioners performed as they should have and established the brand in this Middle Eastern country.
Over the past six decades, we have developed and used a variety of ground-breaking technologies and design innovations to make our air conditioners operate under any environments and more efficiently. All these relentless efforts have enabled us to become one of the leading air conditioner brands in Europe, Japan, the Middle East, and Oceania. Today, we are expanding our business in the American and Asian markets as well.
With the demand for air conditioners surging globally, we have broadened our product offerings to include compact residential air conditioners, commercial air conditioners, and more elaborate multi-split variable refrigerant flow (VRF) air conditioners for large buildings. In addition, we have stepped up our efforts to bolster our air conditioner sales further by making our assortment of commercial units more competitive.
We are working to add more models to our lineup to meet diverse customer needs around the world and to develop more sophisticated underlying technologies for air conditioners to address the issue of global warming. Our objective in this business is to continue to develop products that offer greater energy efficiency and deliver comfortable living environments to customers while at the same time playing our role in advancing environmental stewardship.
