Monitor Controls Divested from Halma plc

Elevator fixture company sold to Innovation Industries Inc
Hauppauge, N.Y. (June 2, 2014) – Halma plc has divested Monitor Controls, part of its Infrastructure Safety sector. The elevator fixture manufacturer was sold to Innovation Industries Inc on May 30, 2014. Janus Elevator Products, also part of Halma’s Infrastructure Safety sector, is not affected by the sale.

While Monitor Controls and Janus Elevator have had a close operating relationship since each was acquired by Halma, Monitor Controls was spun off as an independent company in 2011. The sale of Monitor Controls aligns Halma’s Infrastructure Safety sector more closely with its mission to “detect hazards to protect assets and people in public spaces and commercial buildings.” Janus safety edges, emergency phones, and digital displays promote safe elevator travel and security.

“It will be business as usual for Janus following the sale of Monitor,” said Mike Byrne, Janus president. “We will continue to focus on delivering elevator safety and communications products with excellent customer service and engineering support. Looking forward, we’re excited to roll out the new Panorama Multimedia Ultra-Wide LCD display and continue to develop our Panachrome line of unique elevator detection and visual warning edges.”

Janus Elevator Products Spins off Monitor Controls

Elevator fixture line to operate independently of safety edge and communication business

Hauppauge, N.Y. (September 23, 2011) – The Board of Directors of Janus Elevator Products, Inc., has unanimously approved a separation of the company’s two core businesses – Janus elevator safety edges and Monitor Controls elevator fixtures. The board plans for Janus Elevator Products to continue as an independent company focused on its safety edge, emergency phone, and digital display components business, and spin-off its Monitor Controls elevator fixtures and touch-panel display business into an independent company. Each business has leading consumer brands and the new structure, effective October 1, 2011, will allow each to better serve its customers.

The new company, named Monitor Controls Inc., will continue to provide elevator fixtures and touch-panel display technology for the elevator industry. Rob Isabelle, currently vice president of engineering and manufacturing, will lead the new Monitor as president. Monitor will join Janus in Halma p.l.c.’s elevator division, along with TLJones, Memco and E-Motive.

As an independent entity, Monitor will be able to more effectively address customer priorities with cost effective and innovative solutions, as well as enhance its operational efficiency. Janus will retain its elevator safety edge, emergency phone, and digital display businesses. Mike Byrne will continue as president of Janus.

Both companies are well-positioned for the split with financial strength, flexibility and highly skilled, dedicated employees. The transition is expected to be transparent to customers. All current orders will be processed without interruption.

“The separation of these businesses will allow Janus to better execute a focused strategy to the benefit of consumers of all our product lines,” said Mike Byrne, Janus president. “In March we outlined a plan to address the changing requirements of our customers. Since then, we have observed the acceleration of these market trends, which has led us to take additional steps to transform Janus to meet emerging opportunities.”

“Monitor can now more effectively focus on enhancing service and streamlining the introduction of new products than we could as an operating segment of Janus,” said Rob Isabelle, president of Monitor Controls Inc. “With a renewed focus on our core design and manufacturing business, continued investment in new technology and commitment to build on the potential in the display business, we see a bright future for Monitor as an independent company.”

When used with Janus EMS phones featuring the phone line monitoring option, the LMA unit completes the warning system. To manage multiple phone lines, the LMA can be used in conjunction with Janus’ Line Monitoring Expansion (LMX) unit. Mounted in the machine room, adding the LMX allows up to ten elevator phones to be connected to the LMA panel.

The LMA panel can operate as a standalone unit or be incorporated into a lobby panel. One pair of wires from either the elevator phone or LMX and 110 AC power are required for installation.

After reviewing the T2, the NYC Department of Buildings determined the vandal-resistant panel to be in compliance with ASME A.17.1, ICC/NCANSI A117.1-1998, and New York City Building Code.

High resolution graphics pair tenant logos with floor buttons, provide multi-media building information and entertainment, or deliver advertising messages.
