March 23, 2020: Fujitsu General Australia has announced a strategic partnership with industry leading controls and IoT manufacturer Advantage Air to research, design and build OEM controllers for both the Australian and New Zealand markets.

With technology playing a critical role in the lives of Australians and Kiwis, and following rapid advances and innovation in the controls space, Advantage Air will exclusively manufacture and build OEM controllers under exact specifications for Fujitsu General ducted Heat Pump / Air Conditioning systems.

The partnership allows both companies to collaboratively research and develop controls specifically for Fujitsu General under license for the term of the agreement.

In the second half of 2020, the first controller will be released to extend Fujitsu’s anywAiR Wi-Fi remote control offering, designed specifically for ducted Heat Pumps / Air Conditioning.

“Advantage Air is a highly respected and trusted business in Australia and shares similar values to Fujitsu General. Fujitsu always looks for these synergies with partners as it delivers many benefits for our customers,” said Dave Smith, General Manager – Sales and Marketing, Fujitsu General Australia.

“This strategic partnership will allow Fujitsu General to release smart controllers and strengthen its product offering to dealers and end users, now and into the future. We are looking forward to working with this industry leading organisation and providing our customers with innovative solutions that enable them to create smarter home offerings.”

“We are very pleased and honoured that Fujitsu General chose to partner with us to develop their smart controllers. The trend for consumers to control their devices, including air conditioning, smartly is already very evident in some states and is set to continue to grow strongly in coming years across Australia.  So I think that this is the perfect time for Fujitsu General to provide its customers with reliable, easy to use smart controls for their ducted air conditioners,” stated Dave Devoy, Director, Advantage Air.
