About Us

Founded in 1998, Prolon is a manufacturer of an HVAC control system dedicated for small to medium sized commercial buildings. Its entire controls line offering is meant to be easy to install and to be accessible for all mechanical and service HVAC contractors.

Born out of the frustrations created by other control system manufacturers, Prolon distinguishes itself from competing vendors as being one of the few manufacturers specializing in HVAC controls for light commercial buildings. Controls vendors often specialize in complex and expensive DDC systems, and on occasion offer a scaled-down version for small buildings. However, these scaled-down versions tend to have very limited scope or applications.

As we set out to develop our new product, we started by looking to customers and contractors of other control systems and researching all the points that frustrated them when it came to installation, service, and maintenance. Some of the biggest complaints we found included features such as restricted access where only a certain contractor may provide service, expensive software and software updates, and eventual obsolescence of the entire system leading to forced replacement, just to mention a few. At the drawing board, our priority was eliminating all these concerns by making our software and updates free, allowing any contractor to sell and service Prolon and ensuring to engineer backward and forward compatibility across all generations into our controllers. In a world where, it seems, every business is concerned about "recurring revenue" and trying to figure a way into your pockets on a regular basis, we decided that we will get our recurring revenue by offering a product that is so good, people want to keep coming back and purchasing it again and again.

Our headquarters are in Mirabel, Quebec and all our products are manufactured locally in Montreal where we are able to maintain a close watch on the production process to ensure the highest level of quality control. Prolon has grown steadily since its creation and is quickly becoming the standard in light commercial control systems across North America. We have a vast international distribution network including over 100 distribution branches in the United States alone.
