MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Daikin Applied Americas announced today it won a 2016 Manufacturing Leadership Award from Frost & Sullivan Sullivan’s Manufacturing Leadership Council for Daikin’s Intelligent Equipment platform.
With Intelligent Equipment, Daikin is harnessing the Internet of Things to move the industry toward intelligent building systems. The technology transforms data into insights that help building owners and facility managers optimize energy use, improve occupant comfort and maintain their HVAC equipment preventatively, not reactively.
“We are honored to be called out for our leadership for helping building owners leverage IoT in delivering comfort with the most cost-effective and sustainable use of energy,” said Paul Rauker, vice president and general manager, system and controls, Daikin Applied. “Our innovations are forging a new path for the HVAC industry, driving beyond next level efficiency and innovating for total building solutions. .”
The Manufacturing Leadership Awards, now in their 12th year, honor manufacturing companies and individual manufacturing leaders that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. Winning projects and individual manufacturing leaders have demonstrated achievement in one of a wide range of categories, and are chosen by a panel of expert judges for results that enabled the manufacturers to set themselves apart from their competitors and that have delivered clear and compelling value, return on investment, and other tangible outcomes.
