Johnson Controls, a leader in global diversified technology and multiple industries, has opened a new office at 926 Queen St., Kincardine.
It will serve as a project office focusing on the design-assist, delivery and commissioning of best-in-class building technologies and services in support of Bruce Power’s vision of SMART campus.
“Bruce Power strategic partnership with Johnson Controls on SMART building technology played as a key factor for us to establish our newest location in Kincardine,” said John Wrycraft, Area General Manager with Johnson Controls. “Through Johnson Controls’ many community-involvement initiatives, we look forward to supporting both Bruce Power and Bruce County at many community events.”
Jennifer Edey, Bruce Power’s Vice President, Site Services, said Johnson Controls is helping the company achieve a 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.”
Operating from nearly 2,000 locations in more than 150 countries, Johnson Controls is a leading 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.
Mitch Twolan, Warden of Bruce County, welcomed Johnson Controls to the region.
“On behalf of Bruce County, I welcome Johnson Controls to our community,” the warden said. “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.”
