New Western Zone Sales Office

Monday, October 01, 2007


SUWANEE, Ga., October 1, 2007 - Mitsubishi Electric HVAC Advanced Products Division, Suwanee, Ga., has recently opened the Western Zone Sales Office in Irvine, Calif., to increase Mitsubishi Electric HVAC's presence on the West Coast and house the Irvine Training Center (ITC).

The opening of the Western Zone Sales Office demonstrates Mitsubishi Electric HVAC's commitment to providing contractors, engineers and distributors with the best training and sales information possible, no matter where they are based, according to William Rau, senior vice president and general manager, Mitsubishi Electric HVAC. The Western Zone Sales Office, which opened in August, has more than 4,440 square feet of space and is the first free-standing zone office for Mitsubishi Electric HVAC. The ITC will host both CITY MULTI® VRFZ and Mr. Slim® installation and service training courses, plus other product information seminars.

"With the opening of our fourth corporate training center, we hope to make it easier for our customers, especially those on the West Coast, to receive instruction at an easy-to-reach, centralized location," says Rau. "The new ITC also allows us to ensure end-user customers around the country have access to well-trained contractors, quality products and the best possible service."

The ITC features fully functional CITY MULTI VRFZ and Mr. Slim split-ductless equipment utilizing R410A refrigerant. The range of CITY MULTI systems installed includes the R2-Series and S-Series. In addition, three Mr. Slim P-Series systems using the PCA, PLA and PKA indoor units, and three M-Series systems (MXZ, MSY and MSZ) are set up in the ITC to allow for hands-on experience. The training center contains various centralized, wired and wireless remote controllers to round out the training. The classroom has a fully integrated audio/visual presentation system to allow for interactive training sessions.

"The extensive training helps contractors improve their skills and effectiveness, as well as their bottom line," says Rau. "End-user customers also benefit because contractors who have completed the training courses are fully equipped and qualified to sell, install and service Mitsubishi products."

A short ride from the John Wayne-Orange County Airport, the Western Zone Sales Office is a convenient destination for contractors, engineers and distributors who want to participate in training courses or hold and attend sales meetings. In addition, Mitsubishi Electric HVAC's service training program is a registered provider for North American Technician Excellence (NATE) Recertification. Mitsubishi training centers also are located in Atlanta, Chicago and Dallas. Two additional zone-based sales offices are scheduled to open in the future.
