President Trump has repeatedly vowed to put pressure on American companies that outsource jobs or manufacture products destined for the U.S. market abroad. Several companies recently announced billions of dollars in new U.S. manufacturing investments, with plans to create thousands of new jobs. General Motors not long ago committed to a $1 billion investment in U.S. factories. Hyundai has allocated more than $3 billion to support factories in Georgia and Alabama. Walmart says they will create approximately 10,000 jobs in the U.S. this year. The list goes on, and on.
On Wednesday, May 24, the world’s leading manufacturer of air conditioning systems will celebrate the opening of its Daikin Texas Technology Park (DTTP), a Four Million Square Foot technology-driven manufacturing facility (big enough for 74 football fields under one roof). It will employ nearly 5,000 American workers.
Daikin spent more than $400 million to construct the facility on a 500-acre site just outside Houston, TX. The Texas Technology Park will manufacture energy-efficient cooling products for residential and commercial use in The United States and North America. The AC units will be sold under the Daikin, Goodman® and Amana® brand names.
On May 24th, Kari Durham, Director of Public Information for Daikin Texas Technology Park, will be available to talk with you about this milestone in U.S. manufacturing, the jobs it will create and how it will benefit U.S. consumers looking for American-made AC.
