Headquartered in Morris Township, New Jersey, Honeywell employs more than 69,000 employees in our research and development centers, manufacturing facilities and administrative offices across the region. Throughout the U.S., Mexico, Canada and Brazil we have a team of unparalleled vision, talent, and dedication. Their commitment to results and to continuous improvement is what drives Honeywell forward – with achievements like:
A complete modernization of the Los Angeles, CA city wastewater treatment system. Integrated Honeywell controls were used to streamline operations and reduce environmental risks.
A partnership with Petrobras in Brazil to expand its diesel production capacity and commission new safe, efficient offshore vessels to process natural gas off the coast of Brazil.
Since 1935, China has been critical to Honeywell's growth and innovation strategies. Today, we have around 12,000 employees located in 20 cities, including five major technology centers in Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, Nanjing and Chongqing with more than 1,400 scientists and engineers focused on research and development, engineering and design.
Honeywell is playing a major role in the growth of China's aviation industry. We provide fly-by-wire flight controls, wheel and brake systems, auxiliary power units and the inertial reference and air data systems for the new C919 platform from Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China Ltd. (COMAC). Green Jet Fuel made from Honeywell technology powered the first biofuel flight in the region in 2011.
Honeywell is honored to have been selected to develop and implement China's first smart grid pilot project for managing energy use in commercial buildings.
Honeywell's presence in India dates back to the 1930s, when refining technology from Honeywell's UOP group was commissioned in India's very first refinery in the state of Assam. Today, with more than 12,000 employees, Honeywell operates state-of-the-art engineering and manufacturing facilities in Pune, Guragon, Chennai and Dehradun. Our India operations include automation control solutions, turbochargers, and refining.
Honeywell also has global centers of excellence for technology and product development across the region. We developed the world's first turbo technology for a 2-cylinder micro-diesel engine in India, which is helping to drive a new chapter of ultra fuel-efficient micro vehicles for the growing region.
Honeywell continues to build on our manufacturing, engineering, and sales capabilities across the Asia Pacific region. Each of our businesses – Aerospace, Automation and Control Solutions, Performance Materials and Technologies, and Transportation Systems – is growing and expanding here. Today, we have around 6,000 colleagues in the region.
In Korea and Japan, our turbo operations work with major car and truck manufacturers to provide tailored turbocharging solutions for local markets and global customers, as well as semiconductor manufacturing operations for our Electronic Materials business in Thailand, Korea and Japan. The Honeywell Process Solutions and Building Solutions businesses employ more than 100 engineers and technicians. In our research and development center in Sydney, Australia, we design automation and control software. Honeywell's UOP group has a design and operations center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to serve oil and gas customers across Southeast Asia .
Europe, the Middle East & Africa (EMEA)
Today more than 32,000 of our colleagues represent Honeywell's four businesses across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and we continue to expand to deliver better results and serve more customers. Our 23 research and development centers in the region are innovating and creating solutions to meet the region's needs, including:
Smart grid solutions that can cut peak energy use in commercial and industrial facilities
Advanced turbos that will help customers reach new emissions and fuel efficiency standards without compromising on power and performance
To address the projected increase in air travel across Europe and the globe, we are harnessing the expertise of both our Aerospace and Automation Control Systems businesses. We are developing a modernized infrastructure that will allow people and aircraft to be moved into, around and out of airports faster, safer and more efficiently – saving time and fuel, and ensuring travelers fewer hassles and more peace of mind.
