LITTLETON, Colo. — The InsideIQ Building Automation Alliance™, an international alliance of independent building automation contractors, has expanded its presence in the northwestern United States with the addition of Control Solutions Northwest (CSN) and Utah-Yamas Controls as its newest members. Based in Spokane Valley, Wash., CSN supplies, installs, and services digital control and automation systems. Utah-Yamas Controls provides leading edge control systems using open system architecture from its headquarters in Draper, Utah, and from additional offices in Utah, Idaho, and Nevada.

“Both CSN and Utah-Yamas Controls are industry leaders in this region offering advanced technology and exceptional customer service, which is why each company is a perfect fit for InsideIQ,” said Mark Balent, president of the InsideIQ Building Automation Alliance. “With their impressive customer lists, highly-skilled workforces, and solid financial performances, CSN and Utah-Yamas Controls encompass all the qualities that define InsideIQ member companies.”
