Direct Digital Controls changes name to HumeraTech
Direct Digital Controls, Inc., a building automation and energy management systems provider serving Minnesota and western Wisconsin, has announced that it has relocated to a new, larger facility in Rogers, Minn., and changed its name to HumeraTech.
The new facility will bring jobs to the community and accommodate the company’s growing operations. The decision to adopt a new name was made to communicate the company’s continued goal of making building automation technology more intuitive and user-friendly for the people that implement, use and benefit from it.
The transition to the new facility and name change were both finalized Feb. 1. The move relocated 50 jobs to Rogers, and is expected to result in additional jobs in 2013 as the company grows into its new space. The new 13,800 square-foot facility in Rogers, MN provides over 6,000 square feet of additional space for the growing company and its employees. A portion of the new, larger facility includes exposed ductwork, which will be used for hands-on customer training sessions that demonstrate an active building automation system.
“We’ve grown at an average annual rate of 7.4 percent over the past 5 years, and this move is important as we continue along that path” said Michael Day, president of Direct Digital Controls. “We’re excited about re-establishing our roots in the Rogers area and the opportunities that it will provide for our employees, customers and the local community.”
According to the company, the new name is intended to better communicate the company’s goal of making it easier to benefit from building automation technology. The combination of “Humera” and “Tech” signifies a connection between people and technology.
“‘HumeraTech’ embodies the goal of our business from the start: to bring people and technology together,” said Day. “Our focus is to provide solutions for building owners and managers that make the benefits of building automation technology easier to attain.”
