According to the Honeywell website, the brand has been around since 1885. An inventor named Albert Butz invented a “damper flapper,” and he also patented the furnace regulator and alarm. He went on to form a company called the Butz Thermo-Electric Regulator Company in Minneapolis the following year, in 1886. So Honeywell has had a presence in Minneapolis for more than 100 years!
By 1893, The Consolidated Temperature Controlling Company acquired the Butz Thermo-Electric Regulator Company, plus all of Butz’s patents, and renamed itself Electric Heat Regulator Company (EHR). And in 1904, all of this would come together thanks to Mark Honeywell, who was developing and improving a heat generator. A few years later, he formed a company called the Honeywell Specialty Heating Company. And a few years after that, EHR had expanded the products it produced and changed its name to Minneapolis Heat Regulator Company (MHR).
Then in 1927, MHR and Honeywell Specialty Heating Company merged and formed the Minneapolis-Honeywell Regulator Company. And the rest, as they say, is history!
Nowadays, Honeywell has its hands in a lot of different industries: from home appliances to computers to aerospace technology and engineering. And to think, it all started thanks to a couple of innovative inventors who just wanted to improve furnaces and how heat is regulated. Minneapolis is fortunate to be part of such a rich and interesting history!
