About Us.

Granite State Automation was founded in 2008 by Jonathan W. Major. After a long career with Johnson Controls, Jon set out on his own with the goal of bringing a more personal touch to building automation. Jon's customer-based approach yielded a massive response from customers and filled a much-needed void in the New Hampshire building automation market, laying the foundation for more than a decade of success. That success led to the founding of Bay State Automation in 2016, allowing Granite State Automation to focus solely on our New Hampshire customers.
