Johnson Controls-Hitachi selects Anaqua


The joint venture between Johnson Controls and Hitachi Air Conditioning has chosen intellectual property analytics company Anaqua to globalise its IP management systems.

Johnson Controls-Hitachi Air Conditioning was established in 2015 to serve customers a “diverse product portfolio in the air conditioning industry”.

According to Anaqua, Johnson Controls-Hitachi became concerned about its global operating efficiency and security implications and moved all of its IP management matters to Anaqua.

Johnson Controls-Hitachi will use Anaqua’s IP management systems to manage its patents, trademarks and inventions.

Karen Taylor, general manager of Asia Pacific at Anaqua, said: “With a global IP portfolio that expands throughout Asia, Europe and America, Johnson Controls–Hitachi needed a single, global multi-lingual IP management system.”

She explained: “Our solution will provide them with the increased efficiency and data access and control they have been looking for.”

Bob Romeo, CEO of Anaqua, added: “We are very pleased to help Johnson Controls–Hitachi manage their global IP capabilities. To be selected by another world leader in their product and technology space is a source of great pride for Anaqua, and demonstrates again that our software and services are the best solution globally for IP management.”
