Honeywell opens Saudi training centre
Technology firm adds Dhahran base to Kingdom presence
Honeywell has announced the opening of a new Research and Training centre at the Dhahran Techno Valley business cluster in Saudi Arabia. The technology firm says that the new centre will provide a platform for research and training for Honeywell employees, industrial partners and customers.
Research projects are already underway with King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM), in addition to software development for Honeywell’s Process Solutions business. The centre will also be the first outside the United States to offer customer training for Honeywell’s UOP oil and gas technology business.
“I see the opening of this Research and Training Centre as a foundation for partners and growth for many years to come. We expect a lot of great new products and technologies to emerge from this new centre, as it will offer a platform for engineering and research excellence for employees and customers in the region,” said Dave Cote, Honeywell chairman and CEO.
“We are proud that Honeywell has chosen to partner with us in Dhahran Techno Valley. The company’s training activities and scholarships for young Saudis, as well as our on-going advanced joint research projects. Demonstrate the company’s commitment to innovation and a knowledge-based economy,” said H.E. Khaled Al-Sultan, KFUPM Recor and CEO.
