Johnson Controls International Plc

Business Description

Johnson Controls, Inc. is a Wisconsin corporation organized in 1885. Its principal office is located at 5757 North Green Bay Avenue, P.O. Box 591, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53201. From 1885 through 1978, the Company’s operations were predominantly in the controls business. Since 1978, the Company’s operations have been diversified through acquisitions and internal growth. It currently conducts business in two operating segments, controls (Controls Group) and automotive (Automotive Group).

The Controls Group is a global market leader in providing installed building control systems and technical and facility management services, including comfort, energy and security management for the non-residential buildings market. The segment’s installed systems integrate the management, operation and control of building control systems such as temperature, ventilation, humidity, fire safety and security. The segment’s technical and facility management services provide a complete suite of integrated solutions to improve building operations and maintenance.

In 1978, the Company entered the North American battery market through the acquisition of Globe-Union, Inc. and grew in this market through internal growth. In 1985, the Company entered the automotive seating market through the acquisition of Hoover Universal. During the late 1990’s, the Company expanded into additional interior systems and geographic markets. Today, the Automotive Group is among the world’s largest automotive suppliers. The segment provides seating, instrument panel, overhead, floor console and door systems, including electronics, and batteries for more than 35 million vehicles annually.

Raw materials used by the Automotive Group in connection with its automotive interior systems and battery operations, including steel, urethane chemicals, lead, sulfuric acid and polypropylene, were readily available during the year and such availability is expected to continue. The Controls Group is not dependent upon any single source of supply for essential materials, parts or components.

The Company is a major supplier to the automotive industry

Our major customers are ; DaimlerChrysler AG, Ford Motor Company, General Motors Corporation, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., Toyota Motor Corporation and Volkswagen AG

The segment is the principal supplier of batteries to many of the largest merchants in the battery aftermarket, including Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, Bosch Group, Costco, Interstate Battery System of America, Pep Boys and Sears, Roebuck & Co. It is also a major supplier of automotive batteries to Wal-Mart Stores. Automotive batteries are sold throughout the world under private label and under the Company’s brand names Optima ® and Varta ® to automotive replacement battery retailers and distributors and to automobile manufacturers as original equipment.

Automotive Group

The Automotive Group faces competition from other automotive parts suppliers and, with respect to certain products, from the automobile manufacturers who produce or have the capability to produce certain products the segment supplies. Competition is based on technology, quality, reliability of delivery and price. Design, engineering and product planning are increasingly important factors. Independent suppliers that represent the principal interior systems competitors include Lear Corporation, Faurecia, Intier Automotive, Delphi Corporation and Visteon Corporation. The segment primarily competes in the battery market with Exide Technologies, Delphi Corporation, Fiamm and East Penn Manufacturing Company.

Controls Group

The Controls Group conducts its operations through thousands of individual contracts that are either negotiated or awarded on a competitive basis. Key factors in the award of contracts include system and service quality, price, reputation, technology, application engineering capability and construction management expertise. Competition for contracts includes many regional, national and international controls providers; larger competitors in the control systems market include Honeywell International and Siemens Building Technologies (of Siemens AG). The services market is highly fragmented, with no one company being dominant. Sales of these services are largely dependent upon numerous individual contracts with commercial businesses worldwide and various departments and agencies of the U.S. Federal government. The loss of any individual contract would not have a materially adverse effect on the Company.
