A History of Innovation
Control Products was founded in 1985 by Chris Berghoff, a former employee of both GE and Honeywell.
At Honeywell Berghoff helped to start up a technology venture and that’s where he got experience with a start-up business.That combined with his fascination with the evolution of microprocessors in their role in designing low cost environmental controls, is what prompted Berghoff to start Control Products.Close friend and Honeywell associate Boyd Palgrove then joined Berghoff to manage operations. Together they developed product, established distribution, and grew the company to become a leader in electronic control design and manufacturing.
