KENNESAW, Ga. - Automated Logic Corp. (ALC), a unit of United Technologies Corp., has acquired the business of Control Solutions Inc. - Chicago (CSIC), an ALC dealer serving the greater Chicago marketplace. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

CSIC designs, installs, and services HVAC control systems for commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities in the Chicago metropolitan area. It has been an ALC dealer since 2003. CSIC Chief Executive Officer George Biskup, President Leslie Phillips, and their management team will continue in their respective roles within the new Automated Logic branch office.

"This acquisition is a continuation of our strategy to develop factory-owned ALC branches, like the Houston and Minneapolis transactions closed earlier this year, and represents a critical step in establishing a major branch operation in Chicago," said Gerry Hull, president of ALC. "CSIC is an excellent dealer with a strong management team and an impressive record of technology leadership and customer satisfaction."

"This is an exciting opportunity for all of us at CSIC and we've long shared ALC's employee-focused culture and spirit of innovation," said Biskup. Phillips added, "We see this as an opportunity to deliver even greater value to our customers as we become part of the ALC family."

ALC designs and manufactures control systems primarily for heating, ventilating, air conditioning, lighting, and energy management of buildings. Its systems are installed in commercial, educational, industrial, data center, health care, government, hospitality, entertainment, and retail locations worldwide.

ALC is a subsidiary of Carrier Corp.
