Honeywell, a company specializing in diversified technology, software development and manufacturing, will create more than 800 jobs and invest $19 million to establish a Software Development Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The company will also establish headquarters for its $9.4 billion Home and Building Technologies business in Midtown.

The company’s new Georgia operation will serve as a development center for software and technologies ranging across the company’s strategic business groups: Honeywell Aerospace, Honeywell Home and Building Technologies, Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions, and Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies. The new software development center will create more than 730 full-time software engineering and related jobs, while the HBT headquarters will bring approximately 100 jobs to Midtown.

“Honeywell is thrilled to be launching a state-of-the-art agile software driven product development center in Atlanta, Georgia to create leading edge software offerings based on the latest Cloud, Mobility and Analytics technology,” said Krishna Mikkilineni, Honeywell Senior Vice President of Engineering, Operations and IT. “We develop some of the world’s most sophisticated software based products and solutions that play a major role in the Internet of Things, helping airplanes, automobiles, buildings, homes, industrial plants, warehouses, and workers stay connected, safe, productive and secure. Atlanta offers us access to some of the brightest and most innovative software talent in the U.S. At Honeywell, these engineers will have the opportunity to develop new solutions and offerings that impact industries, improve quality of life, and truly change the world.”

“When innovative companies such as Honeywell choose to locate in Georgia, it is a testament to the state’s thriving technology sector and business-friendly climate,” said Governor Nathan Deal. “The University System of Georgia was instrumental in attracting Honeywell to our state and will continue to develop a strong workforce to meet the needs of innovative high-tech companies. Honeywell’s investment will maximize the technology-oriented talent of Georgia’s workforce and speaks to the state’s reputation as a premier destination for job creators.”

Mayor Kasim Reed said, “Atlanta continues to build on its strong momentum in attracting global companies looking for important assets such as skilled technology professionals, a connected business community and unparalleled access to the global economy through Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.”

“Honeywell is the third corporate giant to locate an innovative software development and operation center in Georgia just this year,” said GDEcD Commissioner Chris Carr. “This announcement cements our status as an anchor in this evolving industry, and it presents an upsurge in economic opportunities for our citizens.
