Honeywell Automation India Ltd
Set up in 1988 with manufacturing, design and engineering facilities spread over 36000 square feet in the industrial city of Pune, the $120 million Honeywell Automation India Ltd., (HAIL), has more than 2500 employees based in 11 offices in India.
Erstwhile known as Tata Honeywell, HAIL has reaped the benefits of its association with the Tata lineage, India’s first business family. A listed company on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) today, HAIL is the first Indian automation company to be certified for ISO14001 and OHSAS18001.
Since November 2004, when the parent Honeywell acquired the remaining 40% stake from the Tatas, HAIL has come a long way, stepping out from the shadows and emerging as the market leader in most of the business areas it operates in, a fact that is underlined by the presence of Rashtrapathi Bhavan in its clientele list.
With its five strategic businesses, namely, the Global Services, Honeywell Building Solutions, Honeywell Process Solutions, Control Products and the Honeywell Security Group, HAIL drives the nation's growth by playing a major role in the smooth running of the "core" business sectors of the Indian Economy, be it Infrastructure, Petrochemicals, Refining, Chemicals, Mining & Metals or Automobiles and Hospitality.
An open, transparent, meritocratic, and performance driven culture encourages HAIL employees to excel in what they do. The JRD Tata Automation Training Center delivers extensive training to its customers to handle the complex technologies and arms engineering students with enough practical knowledge thereby bridging the industry-academia gap. With the average age of employees being 30, the cultural club and the sports and adventure activities are a major hit with the employees serving to constantly rejuvenating them for renewed vigor in their work.
Honeywell Turbo India Pvt. Ltd
Honeywell Turbo India Pvt. Ltd., (HTI) which is a 100% subsidiary of Honeywell Turbo Technologies, commissioned a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in November 2005 at Hingewadi, Pune, and is the first company in India to manufacture VNT™ turbochargers. Honeywell’s VNT™ turbochargers, when used on engines with common rail direct injection technology can improve fuel economy by up to 20%, increase low speed engine boost and reduce emissions. The $10 million manufacturing plant has the capacity to turn out 1,25,000 turbochargers, which will be eventually ramped up to 5 lakh units.
It all began nearly two years ago, when it got Tata Motors’ business for the 1.4-litre and 2.2 litre Euro IV engine programs for both the domestic and the export markets. With the parent company planning to source $100 million worth machined and cost components in the next three to four years and tap the export markets in Asia and Europe, and with the Indian market for turbochargers expected to grow by 25% over the next three to four years, HTI’s commissioning of operations couldn’t have been timed better. The 50 member team headed by the dynamic Sanjay Sondhi is all set to tackle the turbocharger challenge.

Besides creating higher yields, higher quality products, and higher profits for its customers, UOP also creates cleaner technologies and processes for a healthier global environment.
