Bayshore News Staff
Johnson Controls is a leading provider of equipment, controls and services for heating, ventilating, air-conditioning, refrigeration and security systems.
A leader in global diversified technology, Johnson Controls has opened in Kincardine.
The Bruce Power supplier is located on 926 Queen St., Kincardine will focus on design-assist, delivery and commissioning of building technologies and services in support of Bruce Power's vision of a SMART campus.
Operating in more than 150 countries, Johnson Controls is a provider of equipment, controls and services for heating, ventilating, air-conditioning, refrigeration and security systems. The company has been involved in more than 500 energy projects, with solutions that have reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 15 million metric tons and generated savings of $7.5 billion since 2000.
Jennifer Edey, Bruce Power's Vice President, Site Services, says Johnson Controls is helping the company transition to a modern way of operating buildings and infrastructure.
"We run a small municipality on site, with over 30 business-critical buildings that support power generation," Edey said. "Smart buildings are more cost effective, optimize how space is used, and minimize environmental impact. Johnson Controls has already demonstrated its community commitment by becoming a platinum sponsor of the Kinetics Knights robotics team."
Mitch Twolan, Warden of Bruce County, welcomed Johnson Controls and says, "It is a great testament to the impact our partnership with Bruce Power has had on the regional economy. Not only are nuclear supply chain companies setting up locally, we're also seeing the expansion of non-nuclear services into the region, which are supporting a range of sectors and help diversify our economic base."
