It is highly important that we save energy in buildings, offices and all major public projects."
Remarking that Mitsubishi Electric develops all its products and solutions with advanced technology and within the frame of quality and energy saving, Saraçoğlu stated, "As for every other country, we are ambitious solution partner for air conditioning, automation, elevator, escalator and visual data systems of eco-friendly buildings, factories and infra-structure projects for Turkey as well" adding;
"Throughout the world, using available resources as efficiently as possible gains more importance every day. As Mitsubishi Electric, we stand out in all fields we serve from "homes to space" with our energy efficient, environment friendly, long lasting and smart products, systems and services incorporated with advanced technology in Turkey, as well as throughout the world. Apart from providing considerable savings to industries with our automation solutions, we also provide added value to projects that involve daily life such as Marmaray with world's deepest immersed tube tunnel in terms of energy efficiency. With e-F@ctory, our brand's response to Industry 4.0, we provide factories with much faster, efficient and eco-friendy manufacturing possibilities. In the are of house, office and industrial air conditioning systems we provide a problem-free product range equipped with artificial intelligence technologies with A+++ energy class which operates in maximum energy saving capacity throughout its life cycle. We also provide high energy saving and reduce carbon emission thanks to the technology invented by Mitsubishi Electric, which is only available in the elevators of our brand, deciding on the speed of the elevator according to current load."
