125 Years of Innovation

In 1885, Warren Johnson inspired the future, launching an industry focused on energy efficiency and a company poised to explore new ideas and enter new fields. This foundation has ignited the customer-focused innovation of thousands of employees for more than 125 years. 

Today, with this same principle, our employees continue to make essential contributions to the modern world in which we live, work and travel. They enable the ongoing success of Johnson Controls, a notion that founder Warren Johnson would surely appreciate.

"The man who devised the thermostat…in my private opinion, was a hero comparable to Shakespeare, Michelangelo or Beethoven."
-- H. L. Mencken (1880-1956), 20th century journalist
