CORK, Ireland—More than 400 guests attended a grand opening at Tyco International’s new global headquarters here, the company announced March 7.

In January Tyco and Johnson Controls announced plans to merge. Once the deal is closed later this year, the building will become the global headquarters for the combined company, which will operate under the name Johnson Controls.  

In 2014, Tyco moved its official domicile in Switzerland to Ireland, and announced plans to establish a global business service center and hire more than 500 employees whose responsibilities include sourcing and procurement, customer service, research and development, information technology and finance.

Approximately 250 employees work in the new building.

Tyco has integrated the control and optimization of more than 10 building functions, including Tyco's core fire protection, security and asset tracking systems. It also integrated energy-saving elevator- and lighting management, HVAC maintenance and smart parking.

The building design uses Tyco’s “On smart services platform” and is designed to highlight the trend toward smart connected technologies in homes, buildings and cities.
