The Dallas-Fort Worth region, in what seems like the heart of the U.S. commercial real estate boom, now has another big player joining the mix. Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. (Mitsubishi Electric) has announced the grand opening of its new office for the Cooling & Heating and Elevator & Escalator Divisions. According to the Dallas Morning News, a new Dodge Data & Analytics report found that North Texas construction hit record numbers in 2016, with almost $21 billion in new building starts. This makes Dallas-Fort Worth second only to New York City in total construction starts.
“With Mitsubishi Electric’s strong leadership position in both the cooling and heating and the elevator and escalator markets, this opening was strategic to taking a more active role in this region’s commercial, multifamily and residential growth potential,” says Mark Kuntz, senior vice president and deputy general manager, Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. Cooling & Heating Division. “For the Cooling & Heating Division, this new office will be an important training center for HVAC engineers and contractors, as well as commercial and residential architects. This gives our customers a chance to experience firsthand the benefits of our innovative ductless and variable refrigerant flow cooling and heating systems.”
For the Cooling & Heating Division, the new location will be a training center – the eighth for Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating and one of more than 40 supplier training centers. For the Elevator & Escalator Division, this location will be a new branch office – the division’s ninth location nationwide.
“The level of sophistication of this area’s commercial architecture is noteworthy and we see a natural fit for the industry-leading quality and reliability of our elevators and escalators. We know that Dallas-Fort Worth building owners are demanding the best equipment and service available to strengthen the operation and value of their buildings. We’re committed to this market and see a win-win as commercial construction continues to grow and thrive,” says Michael Corbo, executive vice president and general manager for Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. Elevator & Escalator Division.
Grand opening activities were held on Wed., February 15, with a customer luncheon at noon and a ribbon cutting ceremony at 3:00 p.m. The new training center and branch office is located at 631 South Royal Lane, Suite 150, Coppell, Texas.
