MILWAUKEE - Johnson Controls Inc. announced that it has adopted new names for its businesses to create greater alignment with its growth strategies and customer focus.

According to John M. Barth, chairman and chief executive officer, "Throughout our 120-year history, Johnson Controls has continued to transform itself for continued success, and 2005 is no exception. The impending acquisition of York International doubles our market opportunity, and by combining our controls expertise with HVAC equipment, we will be advantaged in the marketplace and have strengthened capabilities to penetrate the huge building services market.

"In the automotive battery market, where we are the undisputed leader, we extended our leadership from the Americas and Europe to Asia, and are prepared to be a strong player in the hybrid vehicle market.

"In automotive interiors, we established a blueprint for continued profitable growth by accelerating cost reductions, leveraging our global footprint, and investing in innovative products."

The new business names are:

  • Building Efficiency - focused on helping facility managers optimize comfort and energy efficiency in their buildings, providing a single source of integrated heating/cooling, lighting, fire and security products and services.

  • Power Solutions - services both automotive original equipment manufacturers and the battery aftermarket by providing advanced battery technology, coupled with systems engineering, marketing, and service expertise.

  • Interior Experience - focuses on the world's largest automakers, providing interior components and systems.

    The company unveiled the new names at its Strategic Review and 2006 Outlook meeting with investment analysts in New York.
