New headquarters for Fujitsu General Australia
FUJITSU GENERAL AUSTRALIA, officially opened its new head office and warehouse in the western Sydney suburb of Eastern Creek last month.
The 11,093sqm state-of-the-art 5-star Green Star energy rated building houses more than 80 Fujitsu General Australia head office and Fujitsu General Assist staff, and an 8,500 sqm distribu- tion warehouse.
Fujitsu General ANZ managing director, Phil- ip Perham, said the new offices will improve
operation and distribution efficiencies nation- ally, create local employment opportunities and pave the way for Fujitsu General’s next stage of growth in the air conditioning market.
“Fujitsu General held a similar official opening, 10 years ago, 700 metres away. Relo- cating to the new premises in such a short space of time, reflects the business growth Fu- jitsu General has enjoyed over the last decade, thanks to the hard work of our exceptional teams nationally,” he said. “Our new headquar- ters has been designed from the ground up to deliver a work environment to meet Fujitsu General’s needs as an organisation for the next 20 years and beyond, both functionally and, most importantly, culturally.”

MHIAA appointments strengthen support
MITSUBISHI HEAVY INDUSTRIES Air-Condi- tioners Australia Pty Ltd (MHIAA) has expand- ed its team with two new appointments to better service the needs of customers.
After moving to its new state-of-the-art prem- ises in Regents Park, Sydney, the company an- nounced that Amir Naqvi has been appointed supply chain manager for Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ) while Damian Hatch is the A/ NZ national accounts manager.
Prior to MHIAA, Naqvi was involved in re- viewing and optimising supply chain structures for large multinationals.
“I’ve also handled transport, logistics, ware- housing, project and change management,” Naq- vi said.
MHIAA prides itself on service delivery, cus- tomer satisfaction and ensuring its processes are optimised. All of these factors have contributed to the company's success.
Naqvi believes that logistics play a pivotal role in building a company’s reputation and in ex- panding its customer base.
“By ensuring that robust processes and back up plans are in place, we can deliver seamless, safe logistics,” he said.
Naqvi will bolster MHIAA’s efficiencies by taking its supply chain to the next level.
“I am a strong believer in team work, and I will work closely with my new team to make sure that we achieve all our objectives,” he said.
“I was fortunate to receive a short contract with MHIAA prior to my full-time employ- ment at the company. It gave me the opportu- nity to immerse myself in the brand and I im- mediately noticed the friendly and cooperative culture.”
MHIAA also welcomed Damian Hatch to the team as national accounts manager. He will oversee MHIAA’s national resellers and retail customers. With years of trade experience under his belt, Hatch gained a wealth of business acu- men whilst running his own business.
He then moved into the corporate space where he spent almost two decades in sales and client services.
“I’ve dealt with key national accounts in the past and pride myself on the strong and estab-
lished relationships that I’ve built over time,” he said.
Aligning to the company’s intrepid goals for the future, Hatch will be responsible for develop- ing and implementing a sustainable sales strate- gy across Australia and New Zealand.
“I am pleased and privileged to have joined MHIAA and I look forward to helping them bring their goals to life,” he said.
Hatch said he looks forward to meeting with all national accounts and building on these trusted and established partnerships.
“It’s an exciting time to join MHIAA and I am ready to start working with the national ac- counts to create an even bigger presence for MHIAA in the industry,” he said.
MHIAA's sales and planning general manager, Adrian Brown, said the new appointments give the company ample opportunity for expansion, refinement and improved collaboration.
