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.
