Control Group, an integrated facilities services and technology company located in Secaucus, NJ, was recently honored by the state’s legislative body by an Assembly Resolution.
Entered into the official record by State Assemblyman Thomas P. Giblin, the move recognizes the firm and its owners, Chairman and CEO Edward D. Turen and Vice President Neal L. Turen, upon the occasion of the company’s 100th anniversary. Also entered into the record was a commendation of Control Group’s “exemplary services ranging from repair and maintenance to security, engineering, janitorial, landscaping, and call centers.”
The Resolution acclaims Control’s 7,000 well-trained employees and its “sterling reputation.” It concludes with congratulations from the entire body of the Assembly and praises the Turen family’s leadership.
“This is one of the greatest honors that we could have received for our work and our longevity,” said Edward D. Turen. “It is humbling to be so well thought of by this auspicious legislative body and to be entered into the record of the great State of New Jersey.”
Founded in 1906 by Austrian émigré Louis Turen, Control Group has evolved from a one-man window washing service into one of the nation’s leading privately-owned facility maintenance service companies. Today, the company’s portfolio of services includes landscaping, engineering, security, construction, integrated facility maintenance and innovation in the area of retail facility maintenance optimization technology. Its client base includes commercial office buildings, industrial and educational facilities, shopping centers and public spaces, such as airports, and entertainment venues that are maintained by a nationwide workforce. Many client relationships span a half century, along with newer ones with organizations such as Macy’s, Silverstein Properties, and Colliers ABR.
Four generations and a century later, the Turen family remains at the helm of Control Group. Along with Edward and Neal Turen, is Edward’s son Scott Turen, President of Control Staffing. The growth of Control has generated job opportunities in New Jersey and across the nation. Currently, the company is embarking upon projects overseas.
