Johnson Controls has closed an agreement to purchase the EasyIQ Building and Energy Management System (BEMS) product line.
Based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, EasyIQ has operations in Asia, Australia, Europe and North America.
The acquisition will create significant growth opportunities as Johnson Controls leverages the EasyIO products and staff in the Americas, Europe, Middle East and APAC building automation markets, as well as the global HVAC and refrigeration markets.
BAS vice president and general manager at Johnson Controls, James Burke, said EasyIQ provides a valuable addition to the company’s already robust building automation system portfolio which includes brands such as Metasys, Facility Explorer, Verasys and BCPro.
“We look forward to bringing our collective customers new building automation products and services that create sustainable solutions,” he said.
EasyIQ co-owner, Mike Marston, said the agreement is an exciting move for the company.
“With access to Johnson Controls resources, EasyIO will continue to bring to market even more new, innovative products,” Marston said.
Johnson Controls has more than 30 years of industry-leading expertise in building automation systems and has driven HVAC controls innovation for more than 130 years. The company provides building automation solutions for complex and light-commercial buildings.
EasyIO’s product line includes IP-based and network-ready controllers, HMI products, peripherals, gateways and modems. The company serves the facility management market, including office buildings, utilities, industrial facilities, hotels, healthcare facilities, retail stores, residences and educational facilities.
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
