Honeywell to Establish Software Center, Headquarters for Home and Building Technologies Business in Atlanta

Honeywell announced plans to establish a state-of-the-art Software Center and the headquarters of its newly-formed Home and Building Technologies business in Atlanta. The site will open by the fourth quarter of 2016 and the Company plans to staff it with more than 730 software-focused employees over the next five years. Most will specialize in software application development, including cloud computing and data analytics, as well as marketing and user experience, and will work on critical software projects across the company.


Krishna Mikkilineni – Sr. VP Engineering Operations & Information Technology

“I would define the Software Innovation Center is the state of the art software product development that takes Honeywell to become the premier cyber industrial company and creates a huge impact because of our products, on the world, with productivity, safety and security, availability and sustainability.”
 
Terrence Hahn, President and CEO, Home and Building Technologies

“Getting connected into the existing town that exists here in the city of Atlanta and the state of Georgia, connecting into the University system, the infrastructure, this is not just a local enterprise for us, but a global one that we’re leading. Airport infrastructure, the ability to get everywhere on the planet- that we need to grow our business, but I also think that most importantly being part of an infrastructure and an ecosystem that’s the headset for growth and the headset for new technology, expansion, how we can move forward.”
Nathan Deal, Governor of Georgia
“We’re not a state that attracts people to come in and then we walk away and forget about them. We’re a state that stays with them because we know that their continued success represents continued success for our state. The bottom line is we are very, very pleased with Honeywell’s decision.”
