Siemens and Emcor Form Alliance for Building Performance Solutions and Services

Customers Will Benefit From Combined Expertise and Specialization

 

BUFFALO GROVE, IL, and NORWALK, CT, Oct. 2, 2003 -- Siemens Building Technologies Inc., and EMCOR Facilities Services Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of EMCOR Group Inc. (NYSE: EME), have entered into a mutually beneficial alliance that will benefit customers of both companies by providing the industry’s most comprehensive offering of building performance technologies, solutions and services.  

As part of the alliance arrangement, the parties have entered into an agreement for EMCOR to purchase Siemens’ Facilities Management Services (“FMS”) business in the United States. The Siemens FMS business provides facilities services to single buildings and corporate campuses throughout the United States. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed. 


EMCOR Facilities Services is a premiere supplier of mobile and on-site building operations and maintenance services and facilities management services. EMCOR Facilities Services currently provides services to customers in over 850 million of square feet of space worldwide.


Siemens Building Technologies provides building infrastructure solutions for comfort, life safety, security systems and energy efficiency, optimizing both building performance and operating cost. The company manufactures and markets building controls, and fire protection and security systems for civic, commercial and industrial properties, specializing in education, healthcare, government, and high-tech manufacturing facilities, as well as campus-style corporate complexes.


“For customers looking to outsource a broad range of facilities services, the Siemens-EMCOR alliance will be able to bundle the best and most comprehensive solution available,” said Stan Kunka, president and chief executive officer of Siemens Building Technologies Inc. “The alliance will pool its knowledge and expertise in order to provide customers with improved value, increased efficiencies and, overall better facilities performance,” Kunka added. 


“Customers are looking for strategic partners that can offer single source facilities solutions,” said Frank T. MacInnis, chairman and chief executive officer of EMCOR Group Inc. “Combining Siemen’s broad range of building technology product solutions with EMCOR’s portfolio of comprehensive facilities services creates an end-to-end building management resource for facility owners. In addition, both organizations have strong commitments to provide complete customer satisfaction.”


Siemens and EMCOR expect the alliance to open up revenue growth for both companies by capitalizing on each other’s market presence. Siemens will be introduced to EMCOR’s customer base, and vice versa. Kunka added, “The alliance will give Siemens the opportunity to enhance its “Best Total Solution” capabilities by allowing the company to focus on its core competency of providing advanced building performance technologies, while offering its customers state-of-the-art facilities management services from EMCOR.” 


“Both companies gain a stronger competitive position as a result of the alliance,” said EMCOR’s MacInnis. “Together, EMCOR and Siemens will be a powerful force in the marketplace for making buildings work for customers.”
