Several Johnson Controls customers and distributors were awarded home-theater systems through the manufacturer’s Ultimate Movie Night contest.
Seven regional grand-prize winners were awarded a $5,000 home-theater system. Seven second-prize winners received a $400 Apple iPod video player and seven third-prize winners received a $200 Toshiba portable DVD player.
“The Ultimate Movie Night contest is one way for Johnson Controls to show our appreciation to our customers and distributors,” said Chris Markert, vice president of products for Johnson Controls North America. “The winners can now sit back, relax and enjoy a great movie on us.”
The contest ran from May through August in authorized Johnson Controls distributor locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. With every purchase of a Johnson product, contractors received an entry form for a chance to win one of the top three prizes.
