Honeywell’s products and services have been distributed and installed in Indonesia since 1974. Our initial presence in the country was through a distributor, Berca Indonesia P T. In 1992, Honeywell established our Indonesian representative office, which maintains a network of local distribution companies. Today, three of Honeywell’s businesses, namely Automation and Control Solutions, Aerospace, and Performance Materials and Technologies, employ over 1,500 employees in cities across the country including Jakarta, Surabaya, Purwakarta, Batam and Bintan.
Along with its business expansion, Honeywell affirms its commitment to fulfill its corporate responsibilities to the local community through Honeywell Hometown Solutions (HHS), our global corporate citizenship initiative, concentrating on the critical issues of Family Safety and Security, Science and Math Education, and Housing and Shelter. Following the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, HHS contributed USD $500,000 to Habitat for Humanity to construct 375 homes in India and 125 homes in Indonesia.
In 2013, two Indonesian middle school teachers became the first in the country to receive scholarships to attend the Honeywell Educators @ Space Academy program at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. With a focus on science, technology, engineering and math, training included simulated astronaut-style exercises, laboratory and professional development, and space exploration.
