Johnson & Johnson – Vistakon

Johnson & Johnson - Vistakon

A subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc., Vistakon produces disposable contact lenses in the United States and internationally. Reliable building system performance is critical at the company’s manufacturing and research and development complex in Jacksonville.


The production of contact lenses is subject to strict regulation. In addition, the production environment must be rigorously maintained and monitored for quality control. Vistakon’s objective is to achieve these goals with highly efficient and reliable building systems controls.


Facility Automation Solutions has provided Vistakon with a variety of systems and support, including:

In addition, we have provided centralized communication to 100-plus Phoenix fume hoods, York chillers and the facility’s lab annunciation and warning system.  All networked devices were tested and approved for the Johnson & Johnson worldwide network, and the systems were integrated using Schneider Electric software approved for FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulation compliance. We also provided user-dedicated color touch-screens for scientists and lab technicians.


Vistakon’s integrated systems control and monitoring network has enabled the company to maintain a consistent manufacturing environment and meet stringent regulatory standards.
