NORITZのグローバル展開

The city of Akashi near Kobe is the focus of our outstanding technical capabilities, and our development and production of high-quality water heaters.
Here we produce 1.1 million water heaters annually at the mother factory of the Noritz Group, which has supported bathing culture in Japan for a long time as a leading manufacturer of water heaters. With technical, development and manufacturing capabilities backed up by a history of 65 years, our headquarters plays a central role in global expansion.
Within Japan, we also produce and sell a variety of products other than water heaters, including cogeneration systems, solar water heaters, gas cookers, system baths, system kitchens, and washstands.

In 2002 we began sales of tankless gas water heaters. In North America, tank/storage type water heaters account for most of the market, but environmentally-friendly, energy-saving tankless water heaters are growing in popularity. In recent years, the condensing type with high added value has increased its share.
Our aim is to make the tankless type No. 1 by enabling easier switching from the tank/storage type.
In 2016 we began sales of space heating products, and we will continue to expand our business through the Americas, including Canada.

We first moved into Australia in 1997 as an original equipment manufacturer. Since then we have sold gas instantaneous water heaters to meet growing demand. In 2014, we entered the Australian market in earnest though acquisition of Dux Manufacturing Limited, a representative manufacturer of storage-type water heaters in Australia with a 100-year history. Dux's strength is in traditional electric/gas storage-type water heaters, and to this we have added the gas instantaneous water heaters that are Noritz’s forte. As a result, we can offer a comprehensive lineup of products.
Going forward, we will expand our business in Australia through the strong sales channels of Dux.
