  Mitsubishi Electric to Strengthen Services for FA Products in Mexico

               New FA center to support Japanese manufacturers

Business Wire

TOKYO -- March 22, 2013

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today that its
subsidiary Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. will establish a new factory
automation (FA) center at its Mexican branch office to provide enhanced
services to Japanese manufacturers operating in Mexico. The FA center,
scheduled to begin operating on April 1, will also support the ongoing
expansion of Mitsubishi Electric's FA business in Mexico.

The Mexico FA Center will provide technical consultation, training and support
for FA products, including programmable logic controllers (PLC), human machine
interfaces (HMI), inverters and servos. Services will be available in
Japanese, Spanish and English for assured customer satisfaction.

Mexico, the largest economy in Central America, is developing rapidly thanks
in part of increased investment in its automotive and electric/electronics
sectors and growing exports to neighboring countries. Leading Japanese
automakers and automotive parts manufacturers are continuing to invest in
local production facilities, helping to raise the demand for FA products and
services.

Mitsubishi Electric previously supported FA products in Mexico through its
North America FA Center in the U.S. and distributors based in Mexico. The
Mexico FA Center will now provide more advanced and efficient services to
better meet needs in the growing Mexican market.
