Our history in container refrigeration

Daikin was one of the first major manufacturers to enter the refrigerated container market back in 1968 and became the leading supplier of container refrigeration equipment throughout the 1980s.

In 1997, Daikin introduced the LXE10D, its first machine running on R134a. This was followed in 2001 by the launch of the ground-breaking LXE10E, a scroll compressor refrigeration unit also running on R134a.

The Daikin LXE10E was extremely well-received by the industry and has helped the company re-establish its role as a major global supplier of container refrigeration equipment. By the end of 2009, over 160,000 units had been delivered.

Today, Daikin is the largest global supplier of container refrigeration machines using scroll compressor technology. The company supplies equipment to over 50 liner shipping and leasing companies and continues to grow its customer base year-on-year in both the operating and leasing sectors.

Daikin manufactures its LXE10E units using the latest manufacturing techniques and equipment to ensure every machine attains the required high quality standards. Currently all units are manufactured at a dedicated facility in Osaka, Japan with production being spread to Daikin’s new factory in Suzhou, China in October 2008 to meet increasing demand. To provide an equally high quality of after-sales care, Daikin has also continued to expand its Service and After Sales Network. An extensive network of regional Daikin service managers and a comprehensive service dealership ensures full support for our customers, no matter where they are in the world.


The future

Daikin aims to continue strengthening its role as a long-term major global supplier to the refrigerated container industry by providing the best performing (quality & reliability) machines at realistic, economical prices. The company will continue growing its refrigerated container business while also expanding into the total refrigeration field to ensure a long-term supply of high quality machines with exceptional reliability.
