Located in Jiangsu province, the entire Wuxi campus now covers 138,500-square-meters with more than 1800 employees, including 60 new employees.  The Wuxi campus and its engineering center is now one of Johnson Controls' largest research and development centers for building solutions in the world for heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, as well as industrial refrigeration solutions.  The campus will also spearhead continuing innovation on heat recovery solutions that make district heating plants up to 40 percent more efficient.  

"Urbanization and the government's efforts to promote sustainable development are driving demand in China for energy efficient buildings," said Dave Myers, president, Johnson Controls Building Efficiency. "This is a real opportunity for us to expand our presence and use our expertise and innovation in a growing global market."

The new facility is equipped with the latest automatic and intelligent production lines to ensure excellence in productivity and quality control.  The new construction used integrated building technologies and solutions such as rainwater recycling and solar energy systems to meet LEED Gold certification standards. 

The expansion is part of Johnson Controls continued commitment to China across its businesses.  Last year, the company announced plans to build a second global corporate headquarters in Shanghai. The 35,000-square-meter campus is expected to be completed by late 2016.
