Well-known supplier of integrated systems for building automation, Tour Andover Controls (TAC), has opened a South African base in Midrand, Gauteng, in order to afford the TAC local base better sales, technical and logistical support.
TAC is renowned in the 'building IT' market, or information technology for buildings. The company established the concept of Open Systems for Building IT, which articulates TAC's primary objective to develop, produce and market products and open system solutions and services that improve the indoor environment and provide building owners with added value through lower operating costs and more attractive properties.
TAC's improved indoor climate helps people feel and function better. The company's Open Systems for Building IT utilises information technology to provide such benefits as indoor climate optimisation, energy savings, flexibility, top-level security, reduced expenses and user-friendly operation.
Schneider Electric, a specialist in power and control, acquired Andover Controls in August 2004, creating the foundation for Schneider Electric's growth platform in the building automation industry. Together, these companies provide added value through building services for indoor climate, security and use of energy, delivered with advanced technology and integrated solutions.
TAC is running its local business from Schneider Electric South Africa's Midrand premises, under the direction of business development manager, Tim Timmins, who brings to the division 22 years of expertise and local and overseas knowledge of building and security.
Outlining some of TAC SA's future objective, Timmins says that one of the first tasks will be to evaluate and establish further key system integrators around the country to strengthen the existing base.
