    Who owns who in the Control Industry?

    I was just curious if anyone knew who owned who in the controls industry? I have heard that honeywell owns/ bought alerton, tridium, novar, etc.

    T.A.C. owns barber coleman, invensys, andover

    Trane

    JCI has there company but I was told that there products are built by someone else. (Ditech or something like that )

    Reliable Controls

    Delta

    Some of these could be wrong I was just wondering if there is just a few manufactures and everyone else just puts there name on the units.

    The lonworks line of JCI products is Distech controllers with JCI tag on it. The certainly saved a lot on R&D by going that way...

    And Honeywell's new Comfortpoint line is just KMC controllers rebadged with Tridium frontend (also rebadged). Big companies do it all the time.

    HONEYWELL owns TRIDIUM so that opens up more of a market for that product , look for it to be like METASYS , small jobs will be by contractors then the big NETWORKING will be by HONEYWELL.

    I heard Carrier has owned Automated Logic for more than 2 years now. Not sure on the Siemens/Landis Gyr? relationship.
