To keep our Global Automation Portal or Vortal very focused and vertical we approach only industry building automation players as sponsors and advertisers. In this way we eliminate the amount of non related information presented to you. The Business to Business or B2B within the Building Automation Industry that occurs on our web site is becoming as important as our industry presence as "The Large Building Automation Online Resource".  Please welcome our newest sponsors.
