The Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Story

Back to Company

A history you can trust

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has delivered engineering excellence for over 130 years across three main industries: power systems, industry & infrastructure and aircraft, defence & space.

Dating back to 1870, our company demonstrated its aptitude for innovation in engineering early on, becoming an established full-scale marine transportation company by 1874. This expertise took us into several industries and propelled us into a household name by 1911.

Turning our expertise to air conditioning and heat pumps in 1953 in Japan, we introduced our first units to Australia in 1975 through a local distributor and established our first company in 1999. Through our successful operations in Australia we steadily grew as a division of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and eventually expanded into New Zealand in 2010.

The MHI focus is on developing world-class, highly efficient and energy saving air conditioning and heat pump systems that offer comfort and reassurance to our customers. The expansion of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has allowed the company to provide a more diverse range of products to the New Zealand market, and provide comprehensive support to our partners and home owners through our presence in all major and regional areas.

Innovation and support

Innovation is central to our organisation and underpins every aspect of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries heat pumps and our workplace culture. Fostering Japan’s technological leadership and our heritage in engineering, aviation and spacecraft leadership, we have achieved unrivalled success in New Zealand. The Mitsubishi Heavy Industries brand is renowned for world-class engineering with a focus on detail in every phase of product design and development.

At the heart of our design philosophy are our people, and providing the solutions that make work and life more comfortable. From silent operation, to long reach air flow, energy conservation and durability, through to digital advancements with Wi-Fi connectivity, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries products continue to focus on innovative solutions for the HVAC market.

Backing our products with comprehensive market-leading warranties, we reinforce our commitment to support our partners and their customers. Our customer-first philosophy is entrenched in the company values across the whole organisation, ensuring customer satisfaction with the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries experience.

Drawing on our long history of engineering expertise, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries provides commercial and residential heat pump systems that is designed to unobtrusively create comfort and peak performance and that looks to the future for inspiration.
