King of Prussia, PA (August 27, 2013) – Quench, the largest independent provider of filtered water coolers and ice dispensers in North America, announced that it has been selected to be the nationwide provider of filtered drinking water coolers and ice machines for Johnson Controls, a global diversified technology and industrial leader serving customers in more than 150 countries.
Johnson Controls’ commitment to sustainability, dating to the company’s founding in 1885, motivated the company to switch to Quench’s filtered drinking water coolers.
“We are honored to partner with Johnson Controls. Our innovative solutions make us a good partner for the company, which has a long history of helping customers be more sustainable,” said John Whalen, Quench Senior Vice President of Sales.
