It all began in October 1994 in Bangalore with half a dozen people with an office in Electronics City, Bangalore India. It was called HISO then – Honeywell India Software Operations. In late 1995, the office shifted to Shivaji Nagar in the heart of Bangalore and today is headquartered in Bannerghatta Road, Bangalore with locations in Shanghai, Beijing, Brno, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Hyderabad and Madurai.
The development of the Silicon Valley of India seemed to be in tandem with the development of HTS. A hotbed for software development activity, Bangalore today houses many IT giants; given the fact that Bangalore is home to some of the best aerospace companies and defense establishments, HTS had every reason to drop anchor in this city and carve its niche, which it promptly did.
Initially, in its budding days, HTS was the off shore software development facility for Honeywell businesses worldwide in the areas of Aerospace and Automation Control Solutions. By early 1996-97, HTS started consolidating its base in India by building dedicated teams for its expanding portfolio. The next 6/7 years saw HTS establishing itself as a center of excellence in core engineering areas.
HTS has steadily climbed up the value chain since then, and its growth has been eventful and strewn with challenges. In these past few years of its journey, HTS has proved beyond doubt that its strength lies in its high caliber professionals who bring with them their expertise and knowledge and are instrumental in the growth of the organization. One of the many reasons that HTS' growth curve has seen a sharp incline is because it has fully and ably accepted the gauntlet of becoming a total solution provider for Honeywell businesses.
Having successfully moved up the value chain means, that today, HTS’ambit has expanded to include diverse areas of technology development and offers a spectrum of services to its customers with its multi-disciplinary approach to providing total solutions. HTS is a center of excellence, a place that nurtures multiple skills (mechanical, electronics & electrical, computer science, industrial engineering, aerospace, etc.), multiple areas of work (real time systems, control systems, EAI, reliability engineering, systems engineering etc.) and multiple technologies (J2EE, .NET, C#, etc.). HTS effectively leverages its legacy of technology expertise and experience to provide best-in-class solutions. Result? Complete customer delight.
Its expansion into various other regions in India and abroad, is tribute to the visionary approach in providing value and contributing to Honeywell’s growth. HTS’ professional and most competent engineers are constantly endeavoring to provide superior value to its customers and ensuring global standards of quality, innovation and lifetime performance. Poised as it is at the threshold of rapid growth in the next couple of years, the path ahead for HTS is challenging, stimulating and completely satisfying.
