Honeywell received the “Above and Beyond Award” from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), an organization within the Department of Defense, in recognition of the company’s “outstanding service and continuing support” of U.S. defense efforts.

Honeywell was also named one of three New Jersey-based organizations nominated by the New Jersey Committee for ESGR for the national “Freedom Award.”  Presented annually by the Secretary of Defense, the award is the highest honor given to organizations for support of reservists and members of the national guard. 

Whether active, inactive or veteran status, Honeywell is a strong supporter of members of the U.S. Armed Forces.  As a leader in the defense and security industries, Honeywell is constantly working to improve the capabilities of the U.S. military through research and innovation.  From developing integrated cockpits to delivering high performance ballistic materials for vests and armored vehicles, Honeywell is dedicated to creating environments where U.S. troops are safer and more secure.
