A full three months ahead of target, September saw Daikin achieve the sale of 100,000 LXE10E scroll compressor units.
The start of 2007 was our busiest to date, with orders placed globally for over 9,000 LXE10E units. Our calculations indicate that this gave us a 33% share of the market for the first quarter of the year – a great achievement!
The second and third quarters of the year are traditionally a quieter period for shipping line orders, but this year saw a dramatic increase in orders from the leasing industry. We increased our market share in this sector from 8 – 11%, and now have six significant leasing customers on board.
Daikin has been the second largest supplier of refrigeration machinery to the global container industry for over 3 years. We will continue the pattern of growth in both volume and market share, and aim to have 200,000 units in the field by the end of 2010.
