Fujitsu General Australia has announced a strategic partnership with industry leading controls and IoT manufacturer Advantage Air to research, design and build OEM controllers.
With technology playing a critical role in the lives of Australians and rapid advances and innovation in the controls space, Advantage Air will exclusively manufacture and build OEM controllers under exact specifications for Fujitsu General Australia ducted air conditioning systems.
The partnership allows both companies to collaboratively research and develop controls specifically for Fujitsu General under license for the term of the agreement.
In the second half of 2020, the first controller will be released to extend Fujitsu’s anywAiR Wi-Fi remote control offering, designed specifically for ducted air conditioning
Fujitsu General Australia general manager for sales and marketing, Dave Smith, said Advantage Air is a highly respected and trusted business in Australia and shares similar values to Fujitsu General.
“Fujitsu always looks for these synergies with partners as it delivers many benefits for our customers,” Smith said.
“This strategic partnership will allow Fujitsu General to release smart controllers and strengthen its product offering to dealers and end users, now and into the future.
“We are looking forward to working with this industry leading organisation and providing our customers with innovative solutions that enable them to create smarter home offerings.”
Advantage Air director, Dave Devoy, said the company is pleased to be chosen for this partnership.
“The trend for consumers to control their devices, including air conditioning, smartly is already very evident in some states and is set to continue to grow strongly in coming years across Australia,” he said.
“I think that this is the perfect time for Fujitsu General to provide its customers with reliable, easy to use smart controls for their ducted air conditioners.”
