A joint venture between Ingersoll Rand and Mitsubishi Electric US, Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US LLC (METUS) was formed in 2018. Less than a year old, the company has claimed a strong position in the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) sector in the United States and Latin America.

“The joint venture was formed in order to continue our momentum in the vibrant US HVAC market. Our goal is to provide the best possible personal comfort for our customers. We want to improve people’s living and working conditions through our products,” METUS President and CEO Atsuhiro Yabu said. 

METUS expects the market to increase significantly in the next decade because of growing interest in the high-performance systems needed for zero energy infrastructure. 

“In order to increase the comfort standards of people nationwide, we need to continue our positive impact in our own homes and buildings. Mitsubishi Electric aims to become a global, green company that enriches society with technology,” Yabu said.

METUS also believes in being active citizens of the local community. It regularly supports various charitable causes in the Suwanee region, one of them being the annual Mitsubishi Electric Classic, a golf tournament on the PGA Tour Champions that selects a number of beneficiaries of cash donations.
