Hitachi to keep doors open at three local divisions

By James Wells

SYDNEY: Hitachi Australia has confirmed it will keep open its three remaining groups – commercial and room air conditioning, electronic components and its power/industrial group.

General manager Geoff Hannaford said Hitachi Australia would keep one sales channel open within the consumer products group – the specialist business to business (B2B) channel, which supports products including LCD projectors and interactive white boards called StarBoards.

“The business to business sales channel under myself will go across to the electronic components group, which will see that group increase in size,” Hannaford told Current.

“The power and industrial group, which recently won a contract to supply Sydney Trains will remain in place. It is a small team that also provides turbines to power stations and it will remain in place along with administration, finance and credit teams to support those groups.

The air conditioning division handles commercial and domestic air conditioning. There are no changes to staff.
