JOHNSON CONTROLS SPREADS ITS SERVICES TO FAR EAST
Johnson Controls Inc. announces it has formed a joint venture with Hsin Chong Group to provide integrated facility management (IFM) services in China, including Hong Kong and Macau. The Hong Kong-based joint venture, Hsin Chong Johnson Controls IFM Ltd.
