KENNESAW, Ga. - Automated Logic Corp., a Carrier company and a unit of United Technologies Corp. (UTC), has acquired two of Comfort Systems USA's independent dealers - United Environmental Services L.P. of Houston, and Comfort Systems USA of Twin Cities Inc. of Minneapolis. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Automated Logic (ALC) distributes and installs building control systems through a network of independent dealers in North America and internationally. These two Comfort Systems USA businesses have represented ALC products within their respective geographic areas for nearly 20 years. United Environmental Services is ALC's largest dealer.

"These acquisitions are an exciting milestone for ALC," said Gerry Hull, president of Automated Logic. "These are outstanding dealers with excellent leadership teams and impressive customer satisfaction records, and they share ALC's employee-focused culture. Going forward, these Automated Logic branch offices will have the support to continue to grow in their traditional business and collaborate with other parts of Carrier and UTC to promote and deliver complete HVAC and building solutions."

Ken Fox, president of Carrier's North American Commercial business, added, "Our acquisition of Automated Logic in May 2004 significantly enhanced Carrier's technology, competitive edge, and management resources in building automation. The creation of these first ALC branches further strengthens our controls presence as we innovate and expand our products and services within the HVAC marketplace."

Automated Logic designs and manufactures building automation and control systems primarily for HVAC and energy management applications systems. Its systems are installed in commercial office buildings, educational facilities, industrial plants, critical data facilities, health care facilities, government complexes, hospitality/entertainment venues, and retail locations worldwide.
