Philips acquires Teletrol Systems
By Anthony Capkun
Royal Philips Electronics has acquired Teletrol Systems Inc., a supplier of integrated solutions for simultaneous multi-site management of lighting and energy use. The Teletrol product portfolio will strengthen Philips’ range of control solutions for institutional customers, says the company, including the seamless, networked management of lighting and environment facilities, including heating and air-conditioning.
“Professional customers, such as retail chains, hotel groups and
building owners with multiple premises, increasingly demand better
control over their lighting and energy use,” said Rudy Provoost, CEO of
Philips Lighting. “They also want to provide comfortable environments
for their employees, guests and residents, while at the same time
keeping operational and energy costs to a minimum.”
Teletrol is aplayer in software-/hardware-based energy management
systems and controls, with installations in more than 10,000 commercial
and retail sites around the world. The company employs 37. Its
operations will be incorporated into the Lighting Electronics group of
the Philips Lighting sector.
