Moving through 2016 has saw price decreases on our major partners with both Fujitsu and Panasonic announcing price decreases. The most recent of these which grabbed the headlines was Toshiba which announced significant price decreases following continuing business efficiency improvements and economies of scale due to growth.
The reductions of up to 16 per cent came in to effect this month (June) and are part of Toshiba’s strategic goal of doubling air conditioning sales by 2020. The new pricing applies to some of Toshiba’s most popular ranges of splits and VRF air conditioning equipment. The highlights of the new pricing structure include: Toshiba RAS systems reduced by up to 16%; digital Inverter split systems reduced by up to 12%; three-phase Super Digital inverter outdoor units reduced by as much as 14%. In addition, the company’s multi-award winning VRF systems benefit under the new approach, while associated products – such as some air-to-air heat exchangers – receive a nine per cent reduction. The company announced its 2020 growth strategy last year and is supporting the initiative with the introduction of new products, increased stocking levels, new appointments, a major expansion in production capacity, enhancement of warranty terms for trained contractors and a global push on training.
Toshiba is dramatically increasing stocking capacity at its Plymouth facility with a further 44,000sq ft of racking space, ensuring immediate product availability across its most popular ranges. The is giving a substantial back-up to our own increasing stock levels as we push our held stock of Toshiba product over £1M.
