“Honeywell was among the first companies to establish a high-end, global technology development centre in Madurai. Currently, local engineering talent [from Madurai and surrounding districts] constitutes about 90% of Honeywell’s existing workforce at the centre, and our Madurai centre has helped develop local talent, many of whom have taken on global leadership roles,” said Samuel Pratap, President, Honeywell Technology Solutions.

“Almost 15% of the people have patents here, the focus on productivity is high, and the emotional engagement and outpouring of energy is very palpable,” Pratap said.
