Date:5/5/2010

MILWAUKEE, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Controls (NYSE: JCI) Global WorkPlace Solutions today announced it has won a global contract to provide workplace services to pharmaceutical and healthcare company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).

The five-year contract builds on an 18-year relationship Johnson Controls has had with GSK as a facility services provider. It will initially cover GSK sites across North and South America, Europe and China – with other sites being brought on in a managed process as they are ready. Johnson Controls will provide GSK with workplace services including technical and engineering services, energy management, project management and pharmaceutical services, for the company's research and development, manufacturing and corporate offices.

With headquarters in the United Kingdom and with operations based around the world, GSK is a market leader in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry.  Through this contract Johnson Controls is helping GSK achieve its strategic priority of "simplifying the operating model" by delivering services that are responsive to changes in GSK's business model.

Guy Holden, vice president & general manager, Global WorkPlace Solutions, said, "Johnson Controls has had the privilege of providing GSK with facilities services for the last 18 years. This major new contract win represents an exciting expansion of our relationship and the opportunity to deliver workplace services that make a direct and meaningful contribution to GSK's business.

"One of the main reasons we were selected was because of our proven track record in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry internationally, and in delivering transformational change in highly regulated life science environments," Holden added.

John Summers, vice president and general manager of Life Sciences, Global WorkPlace Solutions commented: "We are extremely pleased to be partnering with GSK to deliver workplace services for the company globally.

"The contract creates further expansion of our footprint in the United Kingdom and in the United States and expands our current operations in emerging markets such as Brazil and China. As GSK continues to develop the global services model into other business units and geographies our opportunities for continued growth are significant," Summers added.

Johnson Controls Global WorkPlace Solutions will start delivering services under the new contract beginning in summer 2010.
