New Mitsubishi Subsidiary Established
Friday, September 28, 2012
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corp. (MCO), a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), has established a new subsidiary in the United States to conduct marketing and servicing activities for large compressors. The new company, named MHI Compressor International Corp. (MCO-I), began operations in October.
MCO, through MCO-I, aims to collaboratively expand its compressor business in North America by conducting marketing activities closely together with Mitsubishi Corp. (MC), which is also planning to partially invest in MCO-I, the company said.
As a sales and marketing company, MCO-I, which has its head office in Houston, Texas, U.S.A., will also contribute to MCO’s engineering and after-sale servicing of compressors and related equipment throughout North America and Mexico. Gampa I. Bhat, who was formerly a chief engineer at ExxonMobil Chemical Co. and is currently managing a technology consultancy firm, will be appointed to serve as MCO-I’s president.
