TAC designs, installs and services building control systems for market segments, including education, healthcare, laboratories, data centres, government, and commercial offices throughout the Greater Toronto area. It has been an Automated Logic dealer since 1992. TAC president Steve Martin and the firm’s senior management team will continue in their respective roles, said ALC.
“This is an exciting addition for Automated Logic,” said Lauren Kolb, president, ALC. “TAC has been an award-winning partner of ALC for over 18 years, and in fact, was our only dealer to have been awarded ‘Dealer of the Year’ twice. We share the same core values, passion for this business, and drive for complete customer satisfaction.”
“This is an exciting step forward for the entire TAC team. The opportunity to be ALC’s first ‘factory direct’ office in Canada is very exciting for our customers and employees,” added Martin, president, TAC. “We’re looking forward to introducing all our customers to the broader range of solutions and services we can now offer as part of the Automated Logic family.”
