NEW SALES OFFICE STRENGTHENS MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC HVAC COMMITMENT TO QUALITY SERVICE

New Sales Office Strengthens Mitsubishi Electric HVAC's Commitment to Quality Service

SUWANEE, Ga., November 30, 2007 - Mitsubishi Electric HVAC Advanced Products Division, Suwanee, Ga., has recently opened the southern zone sales office in Suwanee, Ga., to support continued sales growth and provide quality customer service.

The opening of the southern zone sales office demonstrates Mitsubishi Electric HVAC's commitment to providing distributors, contractors and engineers 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 zone office is adjacent to Mitsubishi Electric HVAC headquarters in Suwanee, Ga.

"Record sales growth has prompted us to open a new zone sales office in the southern United States," says Rau. "This new office will allow us to more effectively support and train our sales staff, ensuring that our customers will have access to the best service possible."

The southern zone sales office is home to the sales staff, design engineers and zone manager. The design engineers working in the office interact closely with customers specific to their zone and become more directly involved with projects, ultimately providing better customer service. Additionally, the zone office will host meetings and training sessions with distributors, designers and contractors.

The southern zone sales office opens on the heels of the western zone sales office, which opened in Irvine, Calif., in August. The western zone sales office also holds the Irvine Training Center (ITC), which hosts CITY MULTI® VRFZ and Mr. Slim® installation and service training courses, plus other product information seminars.

The new zone sales office is located next door to the Atlanta Training Center (ATC), which is housed within the company's headquarters. Complete with a variety fully operational M- and P-Series Mr. Slim and CITY MULTI systems, the ATC offers a selection of training courses for contractors, engineers and distributors across the country.

Mitsubishi Electric HVAC plans to open two more zone sales offices next year for the central and northeastern regions of the country. For more information about any Mitsubishi Electric HVAC products and services, please call 800/687-1966 or visit www.mehvac.com.
