Distech Controls has opened its new European Head Office in Brignais, Rhone-Alps, France.
With 2,500m2 of office and production space, the new building provides double the space of the previous facility, supporting the company’s continued growth in Europe. Occupied since January 2017, the building is home to 80 of Distech Controls’ 250 worldwide employees, ranging from production, research & development, product management, marketing, sales, finance and administration staff.
The office is designed to offer an efficient, comfortable, and pleasant work environment for the Distech Controls team. Optimised for collaboration, it features open workspaces.
Reflecting the company’s vision of a comfortable, energy efficient and connected environment, it is equipped with the company’s building automation solutions for HVAC, lighting, sunblind and access control, including ECLYPSE BACnet/IP and Wi-Fi connected controllers, and integrates Acuity Brands’ LED luminaires, providing a technological showcase for energy efficient products and Internet of Things solutions.
President of Distech Controls, Martin Villeneuve, said: 'This investment reinforces Distech Controls’ presence in Europe, while providing the means necessary to support our continue growth. This is more than just a building; it is a major accomplishment for Distech Controls in Europe, delivering the message that Distech Controls’ solutions enable IoT buildings.'
