Daikin buys building systems integrator

USA: Daikin Applied has acquired St-Louis-based building systems integrator Dynamic Controls Inc. 

Dynamic Controls has been providing technology solutions for customers in Illinois and Missouri for over 35 years. It specialises in providing security and HVAC solutions for a wide variety of customers in numerous industries. 

Daikin Applied sees the acquisition bringing a new set of capabilities to the business, linking its HVAC technologies with other building systems, such as security, life safety and energy management. “The connectivity provides an enterprise-wide view of the entire facility, as well as comprehensive data and analytics, so customers can control and enhance all aspects of their operation,” the company said in a statement.

Dynamic Controls has offices in Colorado, Illinois, Missouri and Wyoming. It also operates as Energy Tech Systems, Inc in North Dakota. Combined, they are the leading systems integrators in their territories and Schneider Electric EcoXpert Partners. 

The companies will join the Daikin Applied business, but will retain their entire staff, as well as the Dynamic Controls and Energy Tech Systems names.
