Fujitsu General (New Zealand)

Fujitsu is a Superbrand.

Fujitsu General New Zealand Limited (FGNZ) has been at the forefront of New Zealand’s air conditioning and heat pump market since 2000.

Founded in 1936 as a consumer electronics manufacturer, Fujitsu General’s breakthrough in air conditioning came in 1972 when the company introduced the first ‘cassette’ air conditioner, called the ‘Min Min’. The Min Min was so hugely successful that the company’s focus shifted to the development and manufacture of air conditioning.

Fujitsu General has earned its reputation as innovator and market leader by introducing a series of product breakthroughs, including self-cleaning filters, human sensors, UV air filters for a healthier environment and PebbleAir, a smartphone app that allows users to control their air conditioning while away from home.

Fujitsu General is acknowledged as the sole company to recognise and develop the heat pump heating market through promoting energy efficiency, convenience and resulting comfort of heat pumps over the more traditional forms of home heating.

In 2014, Fujitsu General New Zealand pioneered the R32 refrigerant thermodynamic system, significantly increasing air conditioning energy efficiency and reducing environmental impact with reduced global warming potential and zero ozone depletion.

Fujitsu General has more recently introduced new levels of control and efficiency across commercial applications, from the first ENERGY STAR® ducted systems for light commercial, to the popular Airstage J-II series for medium commercial buildings, and the brilliant, large capacity Airstage V-II, VR-II series and energy recovery products for the large commercial buildings.

Demonstrating its commitment to the concept of ‘business serving the community’, Fujitsu has extended a helping hand by donating a heat pump for every Habitat for Humanity house built in New Zealand; by partnering with the Neonatal Trust providing help and education to parents of premature babies; and through its support of Asthma New Zealand in educating and providing practical support for asthma sufferers.

The Fujitsu General brand in New Zealand has become synonymous with product innovation and energy efficiency, delivering products designed to enhance the quality of life with warm, healthy and energy efficient heating and cooling for consumers and innovative commercial products that maximise productivity and energy efficiency in the business environment.
