Distech Controls received the Innovation Canada Prize, based on its commitment to research and development and its integration of innovative business practices within its ISO certified management processes, from the South Shore Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Quebec, Canada.

“We are extremely proud to be rewarded for our innovation in business processes and in our product development” said Etienne Veilleux, president and CEO of Distech Controls “It is all the more rewarding as we were compared to leaders across all industries and awarded the prize based on peer recognition”

Distech Controls has this year alone launched over 16 new products, including a unique wireless, battery-less HVAC and lighting solution, for which it also obtained the 2006 AHR Expo Honorable Mention for Innovation.
