Companies work together in strategic alliance

Johnson Controls has established a new alliance with security and project management firm Carter Brothers. The partnership between the two firms gives both firms the chance to expand their business' reach.

“The alliance will help both Johnson Controls and Carter Brothers reach customers in new and creative ways,” said Carolyn Woznicki, vice president, global purchasing and supply chain, Johnson Controls. “Carter Brothers has a great project management approach to commercial projects, strong local fire alarm presence, and solid construction management experience in multiple markets. Johnson Controls has a global network of branch offices, relationships in a variety of markets and deep enterprise technology expertise.”

Carter Brothers, which is co-owned by former pro-football player and current ESPN commentator Cris Carter, is an Atlanta-based minority business enterprise.

Johnson Controls said "the alliance will satisfy customers who require a certain level or percentage of MBE certified companies or workers in their projects. ... Both Carter Brothers and Johnson Controls are National Corporate Plus Minority Business Enterprises."

According to Steve Board, vice president of Carter Brothers, the new strategic alliance with Johnson Controls does not impact current partnerships. Board said that Carter Brothers has had and will continue its relationships with GE Security and ADT Security Services.
