<p class="component-lead indent-1em">Fujitsu General has added the new J-III L series models, including the industry’s smallest<sup>*1</sup> size outdoor unit in the 16 HP class, to our AIRSTAGE multi air conditioners for shops and offices that are compact and offer a high degree of freedom in terms of construction. We will release these series in the European market in April.</p>

<p class="component-lead indent-1em">Adding these large capacity 14/16 HP models to our lineup will further expand the range of our outdoor unit combinations and will allow us to support various size air conditioning systems.</p>
<p class="component-lead indent-1em">There are constraints on the places where outdoor units can be installed in urban areas in Europe due to the European Landscape Convention. There is a requirement to install outdoor units in places that do not directly catch attention, such as between buildings, in narrow spaces (e.g. balconies) and in places covered by external louvers.</p>
<p class="component-lead indent-1em">To meet these needs, Fujitsu General launched 4 to 6 HP models in the J series in 2012 and 8 to 12 HP models in September 2017 in the European market. We expect that sales of the J series in this fiscal year will increase significantly by 1.6-fold compared to the previous fiscal year on the basis of the number of outdoor units.</p>
<p class="component-lead indent-1em">We will launch the 14/16 HP models in this release with the aim of further increasing our sales in the European market in FY2018.</p>
