Contemporary Controls shares 40-year automation expertise in Asia
Integrated building automation has been around for decades, but its benefits in many areas, such as cutting energy costs and improving building comfort, have yet to be fully realised across Asia's burgeoning cities.
Focused on improving the integration of networks and control processes within Asia's constructions, Contemporary Controls offers automation systems that are anchored on some of the world's most reliable open technologies such as BACnet (building automation and control network), Modbus and Ethernet, among others.
Trusted by leading contractors, system integrators and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for more than 40 years, the company seeks to provide building owners in the region with high-quality yet affordable network automation solutions.
Contemporary Controls provides equipment for small and scalable building management. Its BASautomation range of BACnet routers, gateways and controllers - combined with its CTRLink line of Ethernet switches and media converters - can adapt to various protocols and standards, resulting in a complete and dependable connectivity process.
"With an understanding of the market and knowledge of how to best apply open technologies, we create products that address specific needs," says George Thomas, founder and president.
Based in the United States, with offices in Europe, Contemporary Controls has successfully nurtured long-term partnerships with leading OEMs such as Honeywell, Siemens and Johnson Controls.
Backed by a wholly owned manufacturing plant in Suzhou and distribution across Asia, Contemporary Controls seeks to assist more system integrators within Asia's building automation space.
With the company experiencing double-digit growth annually, and with more of its projects coming from Asia, Contemporary Controls is upbeat about the future of the building automation industry in the region.
"There are so many opportunities for energy reduction where we can apply our solutions," Thomas says. "We will continue to diversify into other areas and find the lowest-cost point to serve more markets in Asia."
