Published:  03 August, 2009

BRACKNELL: Honeywell, a leading supplier of energy-saving controls and water products to the UK heating, building controls and plumbing industries, was placed at 236 in the table of British Business Superbrands, ahead of all the energy companies.  No other manufacturers of energy efficiency products appear in the Top 500.

The table of the strongest business-to-business brands was voted by independent experts and over 1500 professionals from across the UK.  The highest placed energy companies are all placed below Honeywell, are npower (249), British Gas Business (253), National Grid (264), and E.ON (266).

"While Honeywell is well known globally for its diversified technologies including aerospace and chemical, in the UK it is best known as a leading brand for environmental and combustion controls, which contribute greatly to energy and water savings and maintain safe, comfortable environments in homes, buildings and industry," said Richard Edwards, director of environmental and combustion controls of Honeywell Controls Systems.

"Honeywell is committed to helping households, businesses and the public sector to save energy and reduce carbon emissions, through control products and systems which quickly pay for themselves and make a huge contribution to reducing energy costs and environmental impact.

"It is really good to see that consumers value energy efficiency advice from Honeywell, more highly than they do from a range of top class energy supply companies.

"85% of domestic energy is used for heating and hot water, compared with only 3% for lighting yet, while households know they save energy by switching off the lights, few know how to reduce heating energy which will make a much bigger effect.  Honeywell is here to help." stressed Mr Edwards.
