Hitachi is the world's largest manufacturer of household appliances, electronics, computers and power industrial equipment. Today the company produces more than 20 000 products, among which a separate place belongs to the modern climate control systems, air conditioners and heating equipment.
The trademark and the company’s name come from the combination of Japanese hieroglyphs together meaning "Spring of day."
Managers of the company assure this name fully reflects the essence of the brand's philosophy - helping society and an individual via technology.
While developing the climate and heating systems niche, Hitachi postulates the following principles:
- Effective combination of ideas and modern technologies: the widest range of manufactured equipment
- Care for the environment: compliance of equipment with the highest standards for environmental management and the use of environmentally friendly refrigerants.
The international corporation was created in the beginning of XX century. Then, in 1910, a small company was the first in Japan to set up the production of electric motors. Having passed through the 90 years long path, today Hitachi occupies a leading position in the field of information technology. The total volume of annual sales - more than 8 billion yen.
In 1992, Hitachi built the first plant in Europe - HAPE plant, Barcelona, Spain. A new production facility with an area of 40000m2 enabled the corporation to reduce production costs and shorten delivery times.
