Carrier Corp. is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
"Leveraging Sinostride's rich experience in intelligent building projects and solid customer base with Carrier's innovative WebCTRL® product and system solutions will benefit Chinese users with more sustainable operations," commented David Ma, controls director, Carrier Asia HVAC.
