Daikin opens reefer spare parts centre in Dubai
Sept 29, 2016: Daikin Reefer, a leading global supplier of container refrigeration equipment, has announced the opening of a new spare parts centre in Dubai. Daikin Reefer is the first reefer manufacturer to establish an official parts centre in this region. Supporting Daikin’s commitment to safeguarding reliability and protecting cargo, the parts centre will be managed by long-term partner and leading reefer servicing operator, IRS International (IRSI). The new spare parts centre is located in Jebel Ali Free Zone, and has a specific focus on providing refrigerated container services. It is a significant step for Daikin Reefer, which has to date been relying on the experience and expertise of 20 Daikin authorised repairers located across the 15 main ports of the Middle East region. As the Middle East container market continues to grow, so too does the need for specialised repairers that are able to deliver an improved service. Daikin Reefer hopes that the establishment of this new spare parts centre will be welcomed by its customers, particularly shipping lines and repairers who have previously highlighted the need for a ‘Satellite Parts Centre’, in a bid to drive down delivery costs and improve the overall supply chain.
