York International Assembly Plant Tour

San Antonio, TX


Our meeting for February 2019 will be in San Antonio and will feature a tour of the York International chiller assembly plant. York International has graciously agreed to show us how chillers are manufactured and assembled. It is a great opportunity to see the interworking of larger tonnage high efficiency chillers.

Warren S. Johnson along with a group of Milwaukee investors founded the Johnson Electric Service Company in 1883. The Johnson Electric Service Co. continued to develop innovative new control technologies to help customers better manage their increasingly larger and more complex buildings. The company was named Johnson Controls in 1974.

In 1978 Johnson Controls acquired Globe-Union, a Wisconsin-based manufacturer of automotive batteries for both the replacement and original equipment markets. The acquisition of Michigan-based Hoover Universal in 1985 lead Johnson Controls to become the world’s largest manufacturer of automotive seats and other interior automotive components.

Johnson Controls has always offered facilities management services to customers but expanded its scope to cover mechanical and electrical equipment to help customers reduce the number of service suppliers they need in the mid-1980’s.

In 2005 Johnson Controls acquired York International, a global supplier of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration equipment and services.
