Expanded Footprint Critical to Meet Growing Demand for Turbochargers Worldwide

PRESOV, Slovakia, March 31, 2011 - Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that it will invest in a
new turbocharger manufacturing facility in Presov, Slovakia. The new plant
will initially produce turbochargers for light vehicle and light vehicle
commercial vehicle applications and is expected to be operational by 2012.

The new Slovakia facility will supplement Honeywell's global
footprint and address the rapid increase in turbo adoption around the world.
Honeywell expects global vehicle production to increase in 2011 and beyond,
and the turbocharger segment is expected to grow by more than two million
vehicles this year alone. In the next five years, turbo penetration is
expected to nearly double as automakers turn to turbos as a technology
enabler to meet fuel economy and emissions regulations around the world.

"The new plant in Slovakia further extends Honeywell's
leadership in the development of turbochargers," said Alex Ismail, president
and CEO of Honeywell Transportation Systems. "Turbochargers give car- and
truck-makers the flexibility to downsize their engines to increase fuel
efficiency as much as 40 percent and reduce emissions without sacrificing the
performance that consumers demand."

Last year, Honeywell was awarded more than $3 billion of new
business over the life of the programs and expects to introduce more than 100
new turbo applications this year alone, and has more than 500 engine
applications in its development pipeline.
