HONEYWELL REALIGNS U.S. HOME AND BUILDING CONTROL R&D ENGINEERING ORGANIZATION

 MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell Inc. (NYSE: HON) today said it will realign the U.S. engineering function in its Home and Building Control business unit to upgrade and expand critical technology and application skills in the organization and to ensure long-term technology leadership in the industry.
 The realignment involves the layoff of some people whose skills and abilities do not fit the requirements necessary to achieve long-term technology leadership; the hiring of engineers with targeted types of expertise; and a significant training effort throughout the U.S. Home and Building Control engineering organization.
 As part of the realignment, 51 engineers in the Home and Building Control organization today received layoff notices effective Feb. 1. The organization had about 500 U.S. employees as of Jan. 1. The layoff affects 28 people at Honeywell's Home and Building Control facility in Golden Valley, Minn.; 20 people in Arlington Heights, Ill.; and three in Irvine, Calif. The employees will receive career counseling, job placement assistance and severance packages.
 In 1993, Honeywell Home and Building Control will hire 50 to 60 engineers and technicians with appropriate expertise in developing technologies.
 Honeywell Home and Building Control also will enhance engineering staff training to upgrade and expand existing employees' skills in key technology areas.
 Jean-Pierre Rosso, president of Honeywell Home and Building Control, said the training and hiring investments will help ensure that the business maintains its technological leadership.
 "We are in a highly competitive, technology-based business," Rosso said. "If we are to lead the industry long term, we must have the resources in place to anticipate, meet and even exceed customer needs with the most competitive solutions."
 Honeywell Home and Building Control provides projects and services to create efficient, safe, comfortable living and working environments. This business offers controls for heating, ventilating, humidification and air-conditioning equipment; security and fire alarm systems; energy- efficient lighting equipment; and building maintenance services.
