Adding another feather to its cap, technology major Honeywell inaugurated a state of the art Technology Centre in Gurgaon, expanding the research and development capabilities in key areas.

The facility in Gurgaon was inaugurated on February 14, by Union Petroleum Minister S. Jaipal Reddy, who  expressed his appreciation for the state-of-the-art technology at the centre, and the complexity of the installations. “I am told the facility holds miniaturised refinery units, which I will be touring. I appreciate the vision that has driven Honeywell to invest in such a world class facility here in Gurgaon. 

Honeywell India Technology Centre in Gurgaon is one of the largest such facilities outside India, and features pilot plants for developing and demonstrating refining and petrochemical process technology. The company has invested 34 million US dollars in the facility.

This new facility will allow Honeywell to put its vast resources to work in collaboration with some of the brightest engineering minds in India,” said Rajeev Gautam, President and CEO of Honeywell’s UOP. Gautam further added that this facility will bring the development of key technologies closer to the customers in the region, and complement the company’s other technology centres around the world.

“Honeywell is an industry leader when it comes to investing in research and development,” said Marc Turowicz, Managing Director of Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies, India. “This Centre adds to India’s growing strength as a global knowledge hub, allowing some of the best engineering minds to produce breakthrough technologies, to be used in India and beyond,” he added.

The Centre will initially employ 40 researchers, with the total expected to grow to 170 in the next 5 years, the Company said. Prominent among those present on the occasion included Jim Bjold, President, Honeywell, India; Dr. Ian Shankland, Chief Technology Officer of Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies and senior functionaries of the State government.
