Distech Controls Marks Company Milestone

Celebrates 20 year anniversary

January 20, 2015

Brossard, QC, January 20, 2015—Distech Controls, an innovation leader in energy management solutions, announced today the celebration of an important organizational milestone: the company’s 20th anniversary.

The Montreal-based company, founded in 1995, originally provided system integrator services to the Canadian market. Etienne Veilleux, Distech Controls’ founder, President and CEO, soon identified a need for user-oriented building automation products and for solutions that were based on open protocols. From this was born Distech Controls’ first commercial mission: provide controllers, engineering, and software based on open control protocols and standards to offer user-friendly, feature-rich, and cost-efficient solutions.

Over the course of the past 20 years, the organization has experienced significant growth internationally. Distech Controls now includes business divisions and regional offices strategically located in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East, and a global distribution network of over 500 Partners.

The company’s dedication to innovation continues to be recognized around the world, winning various product-focused awards each year. The company itself has received a number of accolades for its strong leadership, healthy financial performance, and forward-thinking corporate strategies.

Commemorating two decades of providing Innovative Solutions for Greener Buildings™, Distech Controls will be marking this celebration with the launch of the company’s new, global website. Providing a user-friendly and integrated experience, the website reflects Distech Controls’ ongoing commitment to quality and to the success of the company’s stakeholders around the world.

“Since we launched in January 1995, Distech Controls has continued to evolve our offering, but we have consistently led the way in delivering innovative products and solutions that empower businesses and individuals to realize energy efficiency,” said Etienne Veilleux, Distech Controls’ President and CEO. “This is a wonderful celebration of 20 years in the industry, and also a tribute to the creativity and passion that has driven the entire Distech Controls team, year after year,” added Veilleux.
