Johnson Controls’ array of products and solutions have already been implemented in some of the world’s most demanding data centres. The company provides a distinctive portfolio of integrated solutions aimed at reducing costs, maximizing efficiency, and optimizing timing for data centre owners. Through continuous innovation efforts and strategic advantages, the company believes it is well-equipped to seize the rapid growth in the data centre market.

Noteworthy strategic advantages of Johnson Controls include pioneering technologies in air-cooled and water-cooled chillers, which support the ongoing surge in cooling demand. Moreover, substantial investments in Research and Development (R&D) and state-of-the-art test laboratories enable the company to accelerate the pace of innovation by designing, building, testing, and demonstrating equipment performance.

An essential element of Johnson Controls’ strategy is establishing superior domain expertise to deliver comprehensive package solutions that yield results while providing service throughout the entire lifecycle of assets.
