The Florence County (South Carolina) Economic Development Partnership and North
Eastern Strategic Alliance announced that Johnson Controls plans to build an
automobile battery recycling facility in Florence, S.C. The facility is expected
to represent a capital investment of more than $100 million and create 250 new
jobs.

Johnson Controls Power Solutions business supplies automotive batteries,
provides hybrid battery systems, and is involved in closed-loop, automotive
battery recycling.

"The proposed Florence facility will be the most innovative battery recycling
operation in the world," said Alex Molinaroli, president for Johnson Controls
Power Solutions. "Our closed-loop system is state-of-the-art in terms of
environmental controls, conforming well within all federal, state and local
environmental regulations."

"In today's highly competitive global economy, our state's ability to attract
new jobs and investment is critical. Today's announcement is certainly an
indication of our success in that regard. As well, this news is a reminder of
the importance of focusing our efforts on improving the business climate here
with fundamental reforms that encourage economic growth. We remain committed to
continuing these efforts to encourage growth and create opportunity for more
South Carolinians while helping companies like Johnson Controls be more
competitive during these challenging times," said Gov. Mark Sanford.

Johnson Controls of new facility in Florence will include plans to develop about
36 acres for its facility and parking, leaving the remaining acreage
undeveloped. Portions of the site will be permanently protected through a
conservation easement.
