About Control Concepts Ohio
What We Do
Our mission is to provide clients with reliable and easy-to-use building automation systems that reduce energy, operations, and maintenance costs while creating more comfortable, healthy and productive indoor environments in commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities.
While most clients are interested primarily in the financial benefits of more efficient energy usage, our solutions also help meet client needs for more sustainable solutions that reduce their carbon footprint.
We believe in collaboration. We work closely with our clients and our supplier-partners to design, install, and service effective, efficient, and reliable building automation systems. Our systems are designed to not only meet client needs today, but also ensure a simple, clear upgrade path to implement newer, better technology in the future.
How We Started
Company President Phil Chiarappa literally grew up in the mechanical contracting industry, working in the family-owned business starting when he was still in high school. Twenty years later, he considered breaking out to launch his own company specializing in building automation. He sat down with his wife, Rachel, to discuss the idea of moving from being life partners to becoming business partners. They felt they had the complementary skills needed to make it a success and launched Control Concepts Ohio as a woman-owned business in 2018. Rachel took the role providing the creative energy and financial knowledge behind CCO. Phil assumed responsibility for the technical and operational side of the business.
The company quickly had to expand from being a kitchen-table operation, to acquiring space in the Akron area. A few short years later, they are already needing to expand to accommodate new business. Although CCO is a relatively young company, it has seen steady, managed growth under Rachel and Phil's leadership. With the support of their team of over a dozen technology and HVAC experts, they have built a long and growing list of satisfied customers both in Ohio and across the country.
