JOHNSON CONTROLS SELECTED BY INDUSTRY WEEK MAGAZINE AS ONE OF THE WORLD’S 100 BEST-MANAGED COMPANIES

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN  — .Johnson Controls has been selected for the fifth annual list of Industry Week 100 Best-Managed Companies, published by "Industry Week" magazine.

Johnson Controls is one of only 36 companies that have appeared on the 100 Best Managed Companies list for all five years.  Candidates for the 100 Best-Managed Companies list were culled from the Industry Week 1000, a list of the world’s largest publicly held manufacturing companies based on revenues. Johnson Controls was selected after an evaluation of financial performance and company’s practices in areas such as philanthropy and safety, and voting by a panel of more than 90 business leaders, analysts, and academicians.


JOHNSON CONTROLS ENERGY SYSTEM MANAGEMENT PROGRAM PREPARES CUSTOMERS FOR DEREGULATION AND SAVES COSTS

MILWAUKEE  — Johnson Controls, Inc. has introduced an enhanced suite of services, Energy Systems Management (ESM), designed to help non-residential building owners manage the total cost, quality and reliability of their power commodities and utility services.

As markets across the country transition to various forms of electric utility deregulation, ESM gives customers the tools they need to adapt to the new marketplace with an effective energy strategy. Gathering and analyzing data about factors such as energy usage, budgeting, purchasing and payables administration allows customers to better manage the demand side of the marketplace in terms of energy consumption, as well as the supply side in terms of contracts with utilities.

In the past when most electric power firms were regulated monopoly franchises, their customers didn’t have much incentive to focus on managing their energy supplier because there were no alternatives. However, with the structural changes occurring in the electric power industry today, companies can benefit from making better energy decisions based on better energy data.

ESM makes effective decision-making possible by providing data that in the past was either unavailable, available in an inconsistent or less than timely supply, or simply too costly to gather.

While companies with the largest energy bills will see the biggest reduction in costs, any size company can benefit from the services.

MIAMI FOUR SEASONS HOTEL & TOWER TO INTEGRATE BUILDING AUTOMATION SYSTEMS IN CONSTRUCTION PHASE

MILWAUKEE  —  Johnson Controls, Inc. has been awarded the security and environmental controls work for the Four Seasons Hotel & Tower project in downtown Miami. Through a strategic alliance, Johnson Controls and Simplex, two leading building systems experts, will provide secure, high-quality, indoor environments for the Four Seasons Hotel & Tower currently under construction by Bovis Lend Lease, Inc. 

Johnson Controls, a building automation system designer and energy efficiency consultant, will install fully integrated heating, ventilating and air conditioning, fire, security and access controls in the two million square foot building. Under the $3.7 million contract, the system integration with Simplex, a leader in fire alarm systems, will centralize information, thereby increasing ease-of-use, speed and accuracy while decreasing costs. "With our Simplex partner, we are able to provide the Four Seasons Hotel & Tower with integrated building systems experience, superior service and coordination throughout the pre-construction process," said Brian Stark, president of the Controls business at Johnson Controls. At 67 stories, the Four Seasons Hotel & Tower will be among the tallest buildings in the southeastern United States. The multi-use structure will include a hotel, condominiums, retail and office space, and a parking facility. The project is scheduled to be completed in November 2002.
