Honeywell has inaugurated its first assembly line dedicated to Fire Alarm and Building Management solutions in Saudi Arabia, marking a significant expansion in its Middle Eastern operations.

This new facility in Dhahran underscores Honeywell’s more than seven-decade-long commitment to the Kingdom and aligns with its strategy to enhance localisation efforts within Saudi Arabia.

Advancing automation in the Kingdom

The Dhahran facility is set to produce Saudi-made products adhering to the highest local and international standards. This move is part of Honeywell’s broader initiative to support the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, focusing on key global megatrends such as the energy transition, automation, and the future of aviation. The assembly line will streamline the delivery of advanced building automation and critical safety technologies, ensuring quicker and more efficient distribution to local and regional markets.

“Around the world, and especially within this region, we are seeing clear alignment between national visions and goals and the need for safer, efficient, smart and sustainable infrastructure,” Phil Daniell, VP and GM of Honeywell - Business Automation in Middle East, Turkey and Africa, said, adding that, “Urban populations are increasing, and through automation technologies we are able to help cater to this expanded need while helping to tackle carbon emissions and driving efficiency through smarter and safer technology.”

Abdullah Al-Juffali, Honeywell’s Country President for Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, highlighted, “It not only enhances our capability to serve our customers with locally manufactured solutions, but also solidifies our commitment to contributing to the Kingdom’s industrial and technological advancements.”

Honeywell’s new assembly line is poised to meet the rising demands of the Middle East’s building automation market, reinforcing its leadership in providing innovative and reliable safety and control solutions that drive economic efficiency and technological progress in the region.

Having operated in Saudi Arabia for more than 70 years, Honeywell now has nine locations across the Kingdom, encompassing advanced research and development, manufacturing, sales, and administration. Notably, approximately 50% of Honeywell’s local workforce in Saudi Arabia comprises Saudi nationals, reflecting the company’s dedication to nurturing local talent and expertise.

The launch of the Dhahran facility reaffirms Honeywell’s commitment to supporting Saudi Arabia’s economic diversification and industrial growth, while advancing its mission to deliver cutting-edge automation solutions that foster safer, smarter, and more sustainable infrastructures globally.
