Honeywell Underscores Commitment Turkish Industrial Market

May 9, 2012
Honeywell recently underscored its commitment to Turkey and outlined Honeywell’s strong position in a variety of industrial sectors including how its technologies and solutions are contributing to a growing Turkish economy.

Earlier this month, Norm Gilsdorf, president of high growth regions, Russia, Central Asia and Middle East, held meetings with Honeywell’s Turkish leadership team and local customers from the aerospace, energy, finance, chemicals, and construction sectors.  More than 100 customers met with Gilsdorf during a reception held at the historic Esma Sultan Mansion in Istanbul, where they discussed recent developments in the automation industry and Honeywell’s solutions for high technology industries.

“Honeywell is positioned well in a wide variety of industrial sectors and our technologies are helping to solve some of the world’s toughest challenges linked to safety, security, energy efficiency and generation,” said Gilsdorf. “Our integrated avionics, refining technologies, advanced gas detectors, industrial automation and building control solutions are helping Turkey comply with more stringent safety regulations and to improve energy efficiency in this exciting and growing economy"
Honeywell opened a new training center in Istanbul in February of this year, which will serve both Turkey and its neighboring countries, acting as a training hub for the region and also offering an extensive range of Honeywell training courses. Istanbul also will serve as the location of Honeywell’s annual EMEA region Users Group event in November 2012, the first time its flagship event has taken place in Turkey.
Other recent Honeywell successes in Turkey:
  • Honeywell Turkey was awarded a contract by Tupras to provide a new Jetty Metering System at Izmit Refinery including the implementation of its Field Advisor software. All product sales of the refinery will be managed through the new Honeywell metering system after the project completion.  Honeywell was also recently selected by Petkim for two Advanced Process Control projects at its Ethylene and Aromatics Plants, after successful completion of its VCM Plant APC Project in Izmir which improved energy efficiency and throughput.
  • Honeywell has also helped develop Turkey’s first intelligent buildings. Honeywell automation systems have been installed in critical infrastructures, industrial and commercial buildings such as TT Arena stadium, BTC Pipeline, İş Bankası Headquarters and Ford Motor Company’s Otosan Gölcük Plant, as well as in industrial facilities such as Tupras refineries and Botas liquid natural gas terminals. The intelligent buildings integrate advanced technology such as Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning, life systems and security systems.
“Honeywell has grown rapidly in Turkey by focusing on the customer and delivering high levels of quality, delivery, and service,” said Asuman Güven, general manager, Honeywell Turkey.  “Our new demonstration and training center highlight Honeywell’s commitment to Turkey and will help us to better showcase our extensive industrial solutions, as well as deliver in-depth training for those users who have already invested in Honeywell technology.”
