Honeywell opened its office in Nairobi, Kenya, in 2015, underlining its commitment to grow across the African continent. The office serves as Honeywell’s East Africa hub, supporting rapidly increasing customer demand for industrial software and hardware across Eastern Africa.
With Kenya focusing on new large infrastructure projects and strategic industrial growth objectives under its country’s Vision 2030 program, we are well equipped to help make the country a more sustainable, smarter, safer and more productive place to live and work.
Our product portfolio spans many of the most rapidly developing industries in Kenya and across Eastern Africa today. It includes residential developments, building management systems, guest room management systems, home and office automation, water filtration and solar water heating, fire safety solutions, security solutions, security and low voltage distribution, electricity and metering, personal protective equipment, transport and logistics, retail, healthcare, field services, warehousing, and aviation.
Honeywell Hometown Solutions is our corporate citizenship initiative, incorporating powerful programs to address these needs in the communities we serve. As part of Honeywell Hometown Solutions, we have provided scholarships for Kenyan teachers to attend the Honeywell Educators @Space Academy program at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. The course includes science and space exploration tutoring, astronaut-style training exercises and advanced flight dynamics programs to help those who teach Science, Technology, Engineering and Math subjects inspire the next generation of engineers in Kenya and around the world.
