Dunham-Bush, one of the world’s top commercial air conditioning manufacturers, today launched six products to complement the growing global demand for environmentally friendly building. Highly energy efficient and using environmentally friendly refrigerant, all but one of the new products will be manafaured at Dunham-Bush’s global headquarters, which is located in Kajang, Malaysia.
They were launched by the Deputy Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Y.B Datuk Haji Fadillah Haji Yusof in Putrajaya today.
Dunham-Bush’s products are already cooling some of the world’s most iconic buildings – such as the Bird’s Nest Stadium in China, Marina Bay Sands integrated resort in Singapore and London Heathrow Airport, as well as Malaysia’s KLCC and KLIA – and its new range is being targeted at both the export and domestic markets.
The air conditioning products offered and manufactured by Dunham-Bush meet both Malaysian and international standards worldwide. They are also ISO certified and have been exported to the European, ASEAN, African, USA as well Middle East markets.
“Dunham-Bush’s new highly efficient and innovative cooling solutions have been engineered to meet the demanding standards for various green certification such as GBI, Green Mark and LEED, which more and more developers are seeking to adhere to,” said Dunham-Bush Director Tan Sri Abdul Majid Khan at the launch.

“We are proud to have our Global Headquarters in Kajang as Malaysia is a very important market which contributes 30 per cent to the Group revenue. Today, Dunham-Bush has over 1,800 employees in 15 sales offices and 3 factories worldwide but with the advanced technology that we offer, people often don’t realize that we’re over 100 years old and have gone through multiple recessions and global depressions,” added Abdul Majid.
Given its long history, he said Dunham-Bush is confident that it is well positioned to outlast the current downturn and looks forward to the next 100 years.
In Malaysia alone, the commercial air-conditioning industry is worth some RM400 million per annum and with the launch of the new products, Dunham-Bush is looking at a 10 per cent increase in market share from its current 20 per cent.
