CALEXICO — Enalasys Corp. scored a coup early last year when it inked a North American marketing and sales agreement with Honeywell Home & Building Control, a $5 billion global corporation specializing in heating and cooling system controls.
The ante was upped in February when Minneapolis-based Honeywell expanded its agreement to promote and sell products made and distributed by Calexico's enalasys to the global marketplace "because of our success in North America," said Eric Taylor, chief executive officer of enalasys.
Taylor said the potential impacts for the fledgling company, formerly known as Federal Air Conditioning Technologies, is immense.
"It just opens up our market territory. It gives us exposure worldwide," he said.
Honeywell's interest was piqued in 2000 when the company caught wind of enalasys' escanAC, a computer-driven, diagnostic tool used to pinpoint and isolate inefficiencies and problems in home heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems.
Since signing its initial deal, Taylor said, Honeywell has helped expose enalasys' products to a new audience.
