 TAC: Andover Controls Overview

TAC is a leading high-tech manufacturer of "Smart Building" systems.

Our systems help building owners manage their facilities more efficiently — to reduce energy consumption and operating costs; improve occupants’ comfort and safety; optimize productivity; protect assets from theft and vandalism; provide life safety measures; and access your building’s information when it’s needed and in a way that is easy to understand and use.

Founded in 1975, Andover Controls has more than 100,000 facility management systems installed worldwide in a wide variety of applications, including offices, manufacturing sites, retail locations, hospitals, sports arenas, correctional facilities, schools, and other facilities of any size. Our systems are in the tallest building in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers in Malaysia, controlling the shopping environment in the Mall of America in Minnesota, and opening and closing the domed roof in the Bank One Ballpark Stadium in Arizona.

All manufacturing is done on-site at our factory headquarters in North Andover, Massachusetts, USA with all products made to the highest standards of internationally recognized quality and 100% tested prior to shipment.

TAC’s technical centers located in the US, UK, Germany, France, Mexico, Poland, and Hong Kong provide our customers the project engineering, technical, and training support they need to effectively manage their own building systems.

System Integration Services (SIS) is the U.S. based turnkey engineering and construction division of TAC Corporation, utilizing branch offices in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Puerto Rico, and Singapore. SIS specializes in mission critical applications, including laboratories, pharmaceutical production suites, and validation services.

Our digital video division, Integral Technologies, based in Indianapolis, Indiana, is a premier manufacturer of digital video surveillance systems that work seamlessly with our automation products.

TAC was acquired in July 2004 by Schneider Electric, the world's leading specialist in power and control. TAC and TAC AB of Sweden, another Schneider company specializing in building automation, have combined to create the foundation for Schneider Electric's growth platform in the building automation industry. Together, Andover Controls and TAC provide added value through building services for indoor climate, security, and use of energy, delivered with advanced technology and integrated solutions for building IT.

The new combined company has 2,700 employees worldwide and projected revenue of $700 million for 2004. More information is available on the Internet at www.tac.com and www.schneider-electric.com

Historical Timeline: 4 Decades of Technology Leadership
Since our inception in 1975 as the manufacturer of Sunkeeper, a programmable building control system, TAC has introduced dozens of innovations to the controls industry. We were the first to offer fully user-programmable products, and the first to promote direct digital control. 

During the 1980s, we became the first to pioneer the concept of Direct Digital Control (DDC) technology for automation of building equipment systems with TAC's second generation of products, the AC256 system. And in the 1990s, we introduced our Ethernet-based third generation product line, Infinity, with the world’s first controller-based web server.

Today we enter a new century of integrated building control, with "cutting-edge" web-based technologies, BACnet and other “open” communications protocols, and advanced energy management strategies and video integration in our fourth generation product line—Continuum®.

What TAC provides its customers today, becomes the industry standard tomorrow.
