Johnson Controls expands Egypt operations
Cairo, August 17, 2011
Johnson Controls, the global provider of solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings, has expanded its offerings in Egypt through partnerships with two leading firms--Shams Group and Tiba Engineering Industries.
Johnson Controls will also utilise these new partnerships to help expand into other African markets to address growing demands for energy efficient solutions there.
“Our partnerships with the Shams Group and Tiba Engineering Industries are the logical next steps for expansion in the region and for providing our customers with additional quality products and service,” said Magdy Mekky, Johnson Control’s vice president and managing director for the Middle East.
“Shams Group will use its network to expand our sales reach in the region and Tiba Engineering Industries will extend Johnson Controls’ research and development, product design and manufacturing capabilities.”
According to Mekky, Egypt’s mature market and the available technical competence will provide a base for Johnson Controls to expand into the African continent.
Mekky said the company has a long association with Egypt, where York ammonia refrigeration units were available as far back as the early 1900s.
Johnson Controls’ 2005 acquisition of York enabled it to offer end-to-end solutions that reduce operating costs, increase productivity and ensure rapid return on investment. – TradeArabia News Service
