The $230 million 761,000 sq. ft. plant will be operational in 2024, focusing on mini-split and residential inverter products.
Daikin Comfort Technologies North America, Inc. (Daikin) has announced the organization will build a 761,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Mexico that will be fully operational in 2024.
The estimated $230 million plant will serve the company’s growth in response to increasing demand for products in North America and Latin America, which include the organization’s Daikin, Goodman and Amana brands.
The new facility will localize production of Daikin’s mini-split and Daikin FIT residential inverter products that are currently imported from Asia.
Daikin has already expanded its current manufacturing presence into Mexico, migrating the production of some modular blower product lines to a 200,000 sq. ft. repurposed facility.
A vast majority of manufacturing operations remain at the Daikin Texas Technology Park (DTTP) in the Houston area, a 4.3-million-sq.-ft. campus, where production volume, scale and workforce headcount will not be impacted by the new sites.
Production at DTTP is set to surpass manufacturing records set in 2021. DTTP has served as the company’s North American headquarters since 2017 and currently employs close to 10,000 people.
