We know your business.

Our History with Johnson Controls, Inc. An integrated, long-term partnership.

Your trade secrets are safe with us!

The longstanding partnership between Butler Tool, Inc. (BTl) and Johnson Controls, Inc. (JCI) is legendary. This partnership has been forged by meeting the tough challenges on every project opportunity for these many years of doing business together. Clear communication, responsive service, and upholding the highest industry standards have been the source of assurance for both companies. In 1960 changes in business at Globe Union gave BTl an opportunity to assist with a smooth transition. Since that time we have built and rebuilt many pieces of proprietary battery production equipment in the JCI battery plants.

In 1990 we expanded our facilities further in order to provide greater service to JCI. At this time we have many millions of dollars in readily available spare parts and tooling for the plants.

Our commitment to JCI runs deep as we regularly train and provide information and process technologies for JCI employees in order to assist them. The following projects and initiatives are just a small sampling of the value we bring to JCI:

AGM capability equipment for JCI- Holland (Toledo) OE plant.
Providing latest generation equipment for the new JCI China, Korea, Brazil, India, & Colombia plants.
SAP Procurement Implementation.
Supplier Diversity initiative.
Preferred supplier Metrics Score Card.

These activities and initiatives are intended not only to strengthen our relationship, but also to demonstrate our industry-leading knowledge and capabilities. Best practices have led both companies toward not just business as usual, but business that has propelled both enterprises to succeed!
