IRELAND: Johnson Controls has created a dedicated Global Data Centre Solutions organisation to provide integrated solutions to data centre customers around the world.

“Over the last few years, we have been investing and building momentum in the data centre market to establish Johnson Controls’ leading position. It is clear our offering is resonating with customers, and we are now taking further steps to capture the growth opportunity ahead of us,” George Oliver said.
