Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division, America’s No. 1 selling
brand of ductless cooling and heating technology, today celebrates the grand
opening of its new headquarters in Suwanee, Ga., at 1340 Satellite Blvd. As

“We’re investing in Georgia so we can be more competitive and quicker to
market,” says Kenichiro Yamanishi, president and CEO, Mitsubishi Electric
Corporation, Tokyo. “This warehouse will hold literally tons of product ready
to ship anywhere in the Americas. Our engineering center will host a wide
depth of talent. Products designed and stored here will not only serve the
U.S. market but the global market as well.”

Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division plans to hire more than 100
engineers, warehouse workers and others locally over the next three years to
add to its approximately 300 U.S.-wide employee base.

The new facility was designed by Macgregor Associates Architects, Atlanta, and
built by Industrial Developments International (IDI), Atlanta, to meet the
U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED^® certification standards and the Green
Globes assessment and rating system. The 550,000-square-foot facility is
nearly twice the size of the Cooling & Heating Division’s former space and now
includes the Division’s headquarters, an engineering center, a professional
training center and warehouse space.

“In the 20 years we have called Gwinnett County home, we have outgrown four
offices,” offers Shuji Morisaki, senior vice president, general manager,
Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division. “Our Division has
experienced double-digit growth over the past five years, and we fully expect
this to continue moving forward. We’re pleased to be in this spacious new
location that accommodates our continuing expansion.”

The Cooling & Heating Division’s new headquarters is one of many key
investments that Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has made in North America in
recent years as it works to strengthen its global presence. Along with
recently expanded manufacturing facilities in Memphis, Tenn., and Pittsburgh,
Mitsubishi Electric will open its first North American HVAC production
facility in Mexico in October 2013 to serve the U.S. and Latin American
