    Mark Controls Corp (MCC) became MCC Powers which became Landis and Gyr Powers then became Landis and Gyr who were finally bought by Siemens.

    Alerton was bought by Novar and they were bought by Honeywell.

    FX controllers are made in Mexico now, and JCI themselves makes them.

    From what I understand FX controllers were originally made in Italy near Milan by JCI. An ex-Carel employee left Carel to start that out for JCI.

    I guess now, they are made in Mexico as Nikko says.

    Sad part is that the WALLY WORLD China Automation System would probably be better than most out on the market today at least you would not have far to go for parts, and the kid in Electronics / Home Entertainment Dept might know as much as some product reps I have dealt with over the years.

    That's rough! If I was a product rep I would think I would be crying after reading that comment.
