Johnson Controls to Acquire Air Distribution Technologies

In a $1.6 billion deal, Johnson Controls has reached a definitive agreement with the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board to acquire its Air Distribution Technologies business.

Air Distribution Technologies is one of the largest independent providers of air distribution and ventilation products in North America. Its product lines include grilles, registers and diffusers; terminal units; fire and smoke dampers; and fans.

Johnson Controls is one of the leading providers of products, services and solutions to increase buildings' energy efficiency and lower operating costs.

The acquisition is on track to close by the end of July.
