JOHNSON CONTROLS PURCHASES NETWORK INTEGRATION SERVICES FROM JWP INC.
MILWAUKEE, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Controls, Inc. (NYSE: JCI) today announced it had completed its acquisition of JWP Inc.'s Network Integration Services (NIS) business. Terms of the purchase were not disclosed. NIS, based in Pittsburgh, specializes in consulting/engineering, network operations management and network installation. The business has about 350 employees, with current customers consisting mainly of Fortune 1000 corporations, large health care and higher education institutions, and government facilities. "Network Integration Services fits into our controls business strategy to create total quality indoor environments for our customers," said Johnson Controls Vice President Terry Weaver. "It adds one more element of the building environment to our capabilities, as a provider of both control systems and operation and maintenance services. "Most of our customers today are looking for open systems and open networks, and many are also looking for a turnkey supplier. In today's facilities, installing and maintaining a networking infrastructure that's coordinated with the building controls system is critical. NIS brings technical know-how and experience to the service of these customers," Weaver explained. "We provide complete operation and maintenance services for all functions of a customer's building," he continued. "One of the most mission-critical services for our customers is the local area or enterprise-wide network. It also happens to be the source of the greatest dissatisfaction with regard to uptime, usability, and quality. Coupling the Johnson Controls expertise in facility operation and maintenance with the network planning, installation, integration and operations capabilities of Network Integration Services makes the customer a clear winner." -0- 12/13/93 /CONTACT: Denise M.
