Utah Yamas Controls History

Established in 1991, Utah Controls has expanded through the years to become Schneider Electric’s largest independent dealer in the country. We were originally formed as an energy management company with a focus on an innovative building control system product from Control Systems International, otherwise known as CSI.

Based in Dallas Texas, Control Systems International merged with TAC which quickly became a leading provider of building automation solutions.  After a series of acquisitions including the purchase of Danfoss, Control Solutions and MicroSign, TAC was eventually purchased by Schneider Electric in 2003.   

Yamas Controls was formed in 1955 in a small San Francisco office. During 50 years in business, George Yamas built his buildings Controls Company into a $ 40 million operation with branches across the West Coast and the Carolina’s. 

Yamas Controls original product offering was the Barber Coleman Network 8000, which was eventually purchased by Siebe in 1987. Siebe and a British company called BTR merged in 1999 to form a company called Invensys. After several more acquisitions including Robert Shaw, Invensys was purchased by Schneider Electric and merged with TAC in 2006.

With their huge commitment to growth, Schneider Electric emerged as the global leader in automation and electricity management control systems. With market leading global brands such as StruxureWare, Square D, APC, Juno and many others the breadth of product offerings from Schneider Electric is unparalleled. 

In 2007 Schneider Electric and Utah Controls partnered up to purchase Yamas Controls and their branch locations. Schneider Electric purchased six of the branches including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Sacramento, and the Carolinas.

Utah Controls purchased the Salt Lake City and Boise Branches and expanded with a new Southern Utah Location. Quickly reaching $ 20 million in sales and expanding to over 120+ employees the company took the best of both cultures and integrated them together to form Utah Yamas Controls and Idaho Yamas Controls.

In October of 2012 Schneider Electric offered Utah Yamas Controls the exclusive distribution rights to Northern Nevada. We formed Nevada-Yamas Controls and took over the operations of Schneider Electric Building Systems in Northern Nevada.

Through this unique series of acquisitions and mergers, Utah Yamas Controls has become one of Schneider Electrics full line dealers. With complete access to CSI, I/Net, Vista, Andover Continuum, Network 8000, Invensys, I/A and of course the new flagship product StruxureWare, we can provide and install a huge variety of building management systems to our customers throughout the West.
