Honeywell opens Baghdad office
Additional offices planned for southern and northern Iraq
Honeywell on Tuesday announced it is opening a full-service office in Iraq’s capital Baghdad. The company plans to open additional offices on southern and northern Iraq in the coming years. The office will supply technology such as process automation equipment to Iraq’s oil and gas industry.
Other offices are being planned in southern and northern Iraq over the next few years.
“We are committed to a full-scale presence in order to most effectively manage projects and build and nurture local relationships,” said Norm Gilsdorf, president of Honeywell Process Solutions.
Honeywell initiated its entry into Iraq through close collaboration with the US Department of Defense Task Force for Business and Stability Operations as well as the Iraqi National Investment Commission, which provided local assistance and counsel.
To facilitate its presence in the country, Honeywell is hiring local employees, including a number of young engineers who will be enrolled in the company’s Junior Engineer Talent Programme, a global curriculum providing extensive training on Honeywell solutions and project management skills. The local employees will join a team of expatriates with specialised experience in both process automation and the oil and gas and refining industries.
