MINNEAPOLIS — To expand its gas and flame detection, and monitoring solutions, Honeywell has acquired Fire Sentry Corp., a fire detection and control products provider. Terms of the deal were not released.
"This acquisition will further strengthen Honeywell's leadership position in the gas detection space," Honeywell Life Safety President and CEO Mark Levy says. "It will enhance our competitive gas and flame offering and bolster our cross-selling opportunities across the globe."
Yorba Linda, Calif.-based Fire Sentry offers fast-responding electro-optical flame detectors, portable test lamps and dedicated control panels, according to a press release. Designed to ensure rapid, accurate and reliable detection of hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon fires within a single device, clients in industrial markets, such as petrochemical, use the products.
"Fire Sentry has a 30-year history of proven fire and flame detection innovation and more than 100,000 units installed worldwide in a wide array of industrial settings," Levy says. "This is a great fit for our Life Safety business. It deeply complements our technology advances in gas detection."
The recent deal builds on Honeywell's acquisitions of System Sensor in 1984 and Zellweger Analytics in 2005. Fire Sentry will integrate into Honeywell Life Safety and will extend significant synergies in distribution channels, vertical end-markets and global end-users, according to Honeywell.
