Haier and Nidec Shibaura (Zhejiang) signed a comprehensive strategic cooperation agreement at Qingdao Haier on October 27, 2016. Both parties agreed to jointly set up labs and R&D teams based on modular cooperation over the next three years. The agreement is aimed at front-end R&D for fresh air system and motor system design to develop energysaving, high efficiency, and smart product solutions. Both sides are also working on a whole new fresh air system design.
The signing ceremony also witnessed the launch and official operation of the joint fresh air system user experience lab, which is a valuable move under Haier’s networking strategy to utilize cross-field strength to integrate Haier air conditioning into Haier smart air ecosystems. The joint fresh air system user experience lab is now the top class in size, test facilities, and measurement precision in the country.
