Who We Are

Jersey State Controls has been providing facility automation systems to New Jersey’s commercial building market since 1983. Founders Mark and John Crescenzo, Sr. started the company from humble beginnings selling small energy management systems to restaurants and retail stores. That work led to installing true building automation systems in facilities such as Verizon, Public Service Electric and Gas and many public schools.

More complex installations followed including work in pharmaceutical labs, hundred plus building complexes (McGuire Air Force Base) and even a professional soccer stadium (New York RedBulls). Jersey State Controls evolved as a “major player” securing controls work in the new construction marketplace. Competing with the industry’s giants, JSC is committed to quality and “delivering more and better service than the customer expects”.

That credo, still in place, greatly contributed to the success that the company enjoys today. As company President, Mark Crescenzo states, “This is a SERVICE based business. To be successful, you need to be able to respond quickly to a client’s needs anytime, day or night, midweek or holiday. Without that depth of service capabilities, you shouldn’t be in this business!”

JSC has acquired a solid reputation in the industry with a long list of satisfied clients. This client list includes Owners, Construction Managers, General Contractors and Mechanical Construction companies. JSC has grown into one of the largest and most recognized, independent Control Companies in New Jersey and provides HVAC Controls / DDC Systems and HVAC service. Over 40 talented JSC employees work to deliver a high-quality product and outstanding service to our diverse customer client base. Jersey State Controls Co. is pre-qualified by the State of New Jersey Treasury Department (Division of Building and Construction) and the Schools Development Agency. It is also licensed by the state of NJ as a HVACR master contractor and owns JSC Electric, a licensed electrical contractor. The company is bonded by a triple AAA rated Surety and has established a stellar list of Clients along with a reputation of providing quality systems at competitive rates.

"Jersey State Controls did an amazing job managing the largest controls contract of its time in the midst of Administrative change at South Brunswick Township Schools. In a short period of time they were able to brief new Administration and keep an aggressive timeline which included the installation of 26 RTU's in a two month time frame. JSC's management of this project was without a doubt instrumental to our success. I truly recommend JSC without reserve."

Pinelands Regional BOE

"Just an expression of appreciation for you and your Team on the work you did for us. The 'HVAC Controls Upgrades' as part of our energy project was both intensive and logistically challenging. The building is more comfortable, I have much better control of my systems and we are saving energy."

Maria-Pia Lordi

"What a pleasure to have found responsible, trustworthy, respectful and nice young men that you have working for you. It's been great working with them."

Pat Lagravenis

Freehold Regional High School District

“Jersey State Controls has been in charge of our control systems for nearly three decades and truly understands the needs of our district. They’ve saved us a lot of money over the years and the Andover system they installed is extremely user-friendly and easy to work with and service, which has made it very popular among businesses and schools like ours. "Jersey State Controls is a large family-owned business but you can always call owners John and Mark, which is very important to you. They’re very accessible, accommodating, and involved — you’re not just a number with them.”
