Development center for warehouse automation in Brno

Spo­leč­nost Ho­ney­well On January 4, 2022, it announced plans to build a new research and development test plant for its warehouse automation activities. The plant, which will be located on the Honeywell Technology Solutions (HTS) campus in Brno, will help meet the growing European demand for building faster and more precise supply chains.

This state-of-the-art state-of-the-art facility will enable Honeywell’s hardware and software engineers to design, prototype and test innovative warehouse automation systems used by European logistics companies to improve the accuracy, efficiency and throughput of distribution centers and warehouses.

E-commerce expectations are changing very rapidly among businesses and consumers, in part due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Consumers in Europe expect very fast and very reliable next day and sometimes same day delivery from their suppliers. For logistics companies, this means increasingly relying on state-of-the-art technologies that can automate and accelerate distribution centers, warehouses and other parts of the supply chain. The technologies that Honeywell is developing in Brno will help meet this demand.

Honeywell Intelligrated is one of the world’s largest suppliers of material handling solutions, providing warehouse automation systems for retail, wholesale, e-commerce, food, packaged consumer goods, medical and pharmaceutical materials, third-party logistics and delivery services. Sixty of the top 100 global retailers and 50 of the top 100 e-retailers use Honeywell Intelligrated automated material handling solutions.

The new plant with an area of ​​14,000 m2 should open in the middle of 2022. In the next part of the year, a new facility for customer training will also be created on site; Over the next 18 months, Honeywell will hire dozens of highly qualified technical specialists to operate the new plant.

The new plant represents another milestone in the entire Brno story, as Honeywell has been developing the latest technology in this city for twenty years. The decision to open another advanced laboratory on the HTS campus is a good illustration of how high-quality engineering and technological talents can be found in South Moravia. Honeywell creates new career opportunities for those who want to work on advanced technologies capable of solving some of the world’s biggest problems.

The new plant will be Honeywell’s only testing and development center in Europe for its portfolio of digitized supply chain technologies, which includes conveyor belts, sorting systems, palletizers and robotics, automatic storage and retrieval systems, warehouse software and voice and light picking technologies. Once fully operational, logistics companies from across Europe will test and prototype Honeywell technologies and train them to stay ahead in an increasingly dynamic and competitive market.

The new plant expands Honeywell’s warehouse automation capabilities in Central and Eastern Europe, following the opening of the advanced Intelligrated production center in Chorzów, Poland, earlier this year, where a number of systems developed in Brno will be subsequently manufactured.

HTS Czech Republic holds more than 100 patents, 17 of which were registered last year. In addition to solutions for warehouses, buildings and industrial plants, the HTS center in Brno also develops and tests personal protective equipment and technologies for the aerospace industry.

This includes, inter alia, technologies for the EU space program and cooperation on projects such as the European Space Agency’s Proba-3 mission, or new areas of aviation such as urban air mobility and electric aircraft. Other research and development projects of this type in Brno include work on navigation systems and solutions for the cockpit, communication data links and radars for aircraft. In its HTS campus in Brno, the aircraft components factory in Olomouc and its Prague offices, Honeywell together employs more than 2,000 professionals and highly qualified technicians in the Czech Republic.
