INDIANAPOLIS — Open Control Systems (OCS), a building automation controls provider, announced plans expand its operations here, creating up to 25 new jobs by 2016.
The company will invest $1.6 million to lease, renovate and equip a combined 14,000 square-feet of space spanning over two facilities, according to Inside INdiana Business. As part of the expansion, OCS renovated a 12,000 square-foot former warehouse facility, which is fully equipped with automation controls and mechanical equipment to showcase its capabilities.
“From the dashboard in your car and the engine in an airplane to the information cloud on your phone and the security system at the office, companies representing industries far and wide find a home in Indiana,” said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, told the business journal. “Indiana’s business-friendly climate and skilled workforce, coupled with its central location at the Crossroads of America, provide a platform for companies like OCS to grow and thrive.”
Founded in 2004, OCS provides buildings with fully integrated automation technology systems to support the utility spend and safety needs of facility operations. These systems include utility management software, security technologies, audio/visual integrations, fire alarm systems and HVAC controls. The company works closely with architectural and engineering firms, construction companies and building owners and operators to serve commercial and industrial facilities.
