TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

WELCOME TO A WORLD OF INNOVATION, WHICH PUTS YOU AT ITS CENTER

Toshiba produced its first air conditioning units in the 1950’s, and immediately worked on introducing improvements.

Our role as an innovator continued with the introduction of the rotary compressor and electronic controls. By the 1980’s with a broad product offering, Toshiba was the first to introduce the inverter driven unit in 1981. Then, in 1988 we introduced the twin rotary compressor, an improved edition of our first inverter compressor.

In 1999, Toshiba again led the industry with the launch of its product range operating with non-ozone depleting refrigerants (R-410A and R407C).

Toshiba’s spirit of innovation continues with its relentless drive for product and system improvements. Every year from 1994 onward Toshiba has received a prestigious award for its great achievement in the industry.
