OYL Group comprises of AAF International (air filtration and environmental products), J&E Hall (refrigeration and freezers) and OYLM Group (air conditioning).
Globally, the OYL Group employs a total of over 6,000 people in factories, R&D facilities, and sales centres.
In 2006, the OYL Group became part of Daikin Industries Ltd of Japan, making the combined group the second largest HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) organization in the world. This has created a sizeable organization with businesses covering Europe, US, Asia and emerging markets with products ranging from residential equipment to large scale air conditioning systems.
The aim of the synergy between Daikin and OYL is for the Group to become the Global No. 1 leader in the air conditioning market.
In October 2009, Nikkei Business Magazine of Japan ranked Daikin in the 3rd position as an organization with greatest potential in the manufacturing sector after Honda and Toyota. This success has been largely attributed to Daikin’s great emphasis on R&D, focus on quality and innovative products, and People-Centered Management (PCM) as its core philosophy.
