The Honeywell Corporation is a Fortune 100 company that was founded by engineer Mark Honeywell as the Honeywell Heating Specialty Company in 1906, which originally specialized in water heaters. However, the roots of the Honeywell Corporation began with the founding of the Butz Thermo-Electric Regulator Company in 1885, which was based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This company was eventually purchased by Honeywell in 1927.
In addition to thermostats, the Honeywell Corporation produces a wide range of other products. They specialize in home controls and smart home technology, but they also work in the fields of aerospace and transportation systems. Honeywell is also a world leader in the production of various chemicals and building materials.
In 1956, Honeywell introduced the T-86 Round thermostat, which it continues to produce as of 2015. This thermostat is used in more households around the world than any other Honeywell product.
