Computrols, which began providing first-rate professional technical service for large building automation systems in 1983, purchased the former Times-Picayune building in Gretna in 2016. The company is committed to the region, unlike other companies who move out of the U.S. to avoid taxes.
Its team designs, manufactures, and installs their state-of-the-art building automation systems all over the world. Scott Holstein, marketing manager for Computrols, says they compete daily with other similar companies such as Siemens.
Louisiana clients include One Shell Square, the Mercedes–Benz Superdome, Harrah’s, and Children’s Hospital among many others.
Computrols also now has a branch office open at the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator. “ We expect to see our most significant expansion in the Southern California market. We are also planning on expanding our footprint online,” shared Holstein.
