Honeywell announced today the grand opening of its Research & Training Center at the Dhahran Techno Valley business cluster in Saudi Arabia.
The center offers a platform for engineering research and training for Honeywell employees, industrial partners and customers. Advanced research projects on catalytic processes are already being conducted with King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM), as well as software development for Honeywell’s Process Solutions business. Advanced customer training for Honeywell’s UOP oil and gas technology business will be another feature. Honeywell says this center is the first outside the U.S. to offer these services to local customers.
In addition to the new center at the Dhahran Techno Valley, Honeywell’s site locations also include Riyadh, Jeddah and the key industrial cities of Jubail and Yanbu.
