Atkinson Electronics, Inc. (AEI)
Atkinson Electronics´ unique variable flow fan system controls were expanded in the late 1980´s into variable flow critical environment fume hood controls for large research and university laboratories. Atkinson Electronics partnered with Phoenix Laboratory Control Systems to provide custom critical air flow environments. For 20 years Atkinson has dominated this industry in the Utah area and has supplied control systems to the majority of the laboratories and critical manufacturing environments for many large customers, including Brigham Young University, the University of Utah, Huntsman Cancer Research, Dugway Proving Ground, Utah State Unified Laboratories, Utah State University, Weber State University, and many others.
Atkinson Electronics has continued to grow through offering a wide variety of building automation and control solutions for hospitals, government buildings, universities, schools and institutions, commercial office space, and critical air environments. Atkinsons systems were the automation backbone for a number of 2002 Winter Olympics projects, including the Gateway redevelopment project in downtown Salt Lake City. Atkinson´s success in designing and installing innovative building automation solutions has won many sales awards over the years.
In 1991 Atkinson moved into its current headquarters in Murray, Utah. The Atkinson office building was recently retrofitted with solar PV and thermal power generation and the latest, state-of-the-art HVAC direct/indirect air conditioning processes. The target of these energy projects has been to lower Atkinson´s overall energy budget by more than 50%. These retrofits have spearheaded Atkinson´s application for a Silver LEED EB Green Building award from the US Green Building Council. Click here for a current live web demo.
