For more than twenty nine years the ECS group has worked to established itself as the premier Building Automation/Controls, Mechanical Services, Energy Management Company.  We are a service-based company focused on the long-term performance and efficiency of your building.  We take pride in serving our customers from project conception to completion. Whether we’re installing HVAC controls, lighting controls, secured access or CCTV systems, you’ll find our service fast, complete, and backed by years of experience.  This dedication to service is why we retain our customers for decades.

We are proud to be the parent company for product brands Open General and Spinwave Wireless Systems. Open General is now a leading independent BACnet manufacturer of DDC building automation products and software. Through Open General’s adoption of the BACnet protocol, we can integrate your entire facility’s HVAC, lighting and access controls, and closed circuit television (CCTV) into one single Building Management System. Your entire building can be monitored and controlled through a single user friendly, web-based interface. This gives you full control of your facility from any work-station in your office or from any remote location in real time.  There are benefits to having a direct relationship with the product manufacturer. If projects produce special requirements and something needs to be tweaked or modified the Open General R&D team is readily available next door to create the product needed to solve the problem.

Our People

In our service division, we know that trust is a key part of a service agreement. To that end, we don’t have just a pool of technicians; we assign one person to your building. This ensures that you get someone who can get to know your system inside and out as well as understands the protocols for your particular facility. No more wasting time getting a service technician up to speed with your system; no more re-orientation every time there is a service call. Essentially, you get another employee; just one that wears an ECS logo.

Just as we do with our customers, ECS prides itself on the longevity of our employees. We are not a family business but we do consider ourselves a family.  We take employee job satisfaction seriously, and we provide a challenging and flexible working environment that encourages growth and career development work in multidisciplinary teams.  With one of the lowest employee turnovers in the industry, we are able to provide our clients with dedicated service technicians and consistent project teams who are always up to speed with your building, and who become an extension of your own team.

Many of our employees have been promoted from within the company. This tradition of rewarding excellence, has ensured that the experience gained from working at ECS is retained.
