Jan. 9, 2003: Honeywell Launches Elite Designation For Contractors

January 9, 2003
MINNEAPOLIS — Honeywell Building Controls Solutions has created a new elite designation for contractors called Authorized Control Integrator (ACI). According to the manufacturer, this is the highest contractor designation offered through Honeywell Building Control Solutions’ distribution channel and is based on level of expertise, training, building size, and complexity.

There are a select number of Honeywell contractors with the ACI designation already, and Honeywell is looking to qualify others to round out its coverage in the U.S. The primary focus for the contractors is to sell and service Honeywell’s EXCEL 5000® Open System and the SymmetrE®, a workstation which the company said provides integration of Honeywell and third-party HVAC systems.

“We’re looking for firms with advanced technical expertise in large HVAC installations with a strong application engineering staff,” said David Willet, vice president of Honeywell’s Building Control Solutions business. “Other important factors include the ability to manage complex projects and LAN/Internet expertise.”

Honeywell provides ACI contractors with training and ongoing technical support, and conducts periodic quality audits.

Contractors interested in determining whether they would qualify for ACI status can call 763-954-6979 or visit www.customer.honeywell.com.
