The company began in 1904 when an engineer named Mark Honeywell perfected a heat generator prototype. Honeywell has a long, colorful legacy of contributing key technologies that arguably played a hand in notable historical events. Contributions include the first patented electric motor submitted to Underwriters Laboratories, designing the first circular thermostat known as “The Round,” and developing NASA instruments. In 1999 Honeywell merged with a larger aerospace engineering company called AlliedSignal; the Honeywell title was kept after the acquisition due to its superior brand name recognition. AlliedSignal refocused Honeywell’s direction, adapting a six sigma model and a newfound dedication to discovering resourceful technology.
