PENN gets new look to mark 100th birthday

PENN Controls is marking its 100th birthday by given its product range a facelift and refresh.

The entire line of PENN electromechanical controls – including pressure, temperature, and flow level controls – are being transitioned from grey-coloured covers to modern-looking satin black covers with a new, bolder PENN logo.

The change provides consistent branding across the entire PENN, by Johnson Controls, product offering. In addition to the colour and logo change, individual boxed controls will transition from brown to white boxes.

Brothers Ralph and Albert Penn co-founded the Penn Electric Machine Company in Des Moines, IA, in 1919. The brand was acquired by the Johnson Service Company in 1968.

“We are honoured to mark the centennial of the PENN brand and the high-performance products the company has been producing for the past 100 years,” said Keith Gifford, global product manager. “As we reflect on the past century of excellence, we also celebrate the future with an updated logo that reflects our never-ending commitment to progress and innovation.”
