ACHIEVEMENTS For the past 50 years, Daikin Singapore has been touching the lives of Singaporeans. Set up here in 1968, Daikin has mirrored the nation’s growth and gone on to achieve many firsts in Singapore. Daikin is honoured to be the only air conditioner brand in the Singapore Book of Records. With 4 ‘firsts’ in the air-conditioning industry, this prestigious recognition greatly reinforces Daikin’s position as a strong market leader and its dedication to continually provide the best for its new, current and long-term customers in Singapore. When the nation’s Housing and Development Board (HDB) was paving the way to house Singaporeans of growing affluence, Daikin was the first to introduce multi-split air-conditioning systems to HDB homeowners. As businesses boomed, Daikin also introduced to the island in 1986, the world’s first super-efficient VRV® Systems for commercial buildings. Daikin is also the first to manufacture Modlair Air Handling Units which are widely installed in commercial buildings. At home, at work and at play, Daikin has always been the preferred choice for residential, commercial and industrial buildings in Singapore. Daikin also popularised inverter technology and 5 Ticks energy efficient models to address the country’s quest for greater eco-friendly and energy efficient products. In short, the Daikin story in Singapore is intertwined with the glowing success of the nation-state. Other than being voted as Singapore’s Favourite Aircon Brand in Superbrands Research Survey, Daikin has also been voted as Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand Gold Award Winner for 17 consecutive years – the longest holder of Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand Gold Award in the Singapore Airconditioning Industry. As the only manufacturer that develops and manufactures both air-conditioners and refrigerants, Daikin also launched the world’s first residential-use air-conditioner using R32 refrigerant.
