Honeywell Adds New Fire and Gas Safety Capabilities
Honeywell announced it has acquired privately held SCAME Sistemi, s.r.l., adding new fire and gas safety capabilities to Honeywell's portfolio of Connected Building solutions. SCAME is a leading provider of all-in-one systems that deliver management of fire and gas detection, and fire extinguishing systems, from a single interface and supervisory software platform.
When combined with Honeywell's fire and gas product portfolio, SCAME's industrial controllers and management systems will provide integrated solutions for customers. Installers and operators will benefit from seamless integration that provides access to critical information, alerts and control. Honeywell's acquisition of SCAME will create new opportunities to deploy SCAME's products worldwide, helping make industrial sites around the globe safer and more secure.
Founded in 1979, SCAME is based in Arluno (Milan), Italy, and has approximately 25 employees. The company's products feature user-friendly controls that can be customized for unique customer needs, including system configuration, testing and monitoring. Its systems use equipment with predefined safety integrity levels (SIL), which allow users to actively manage their level of risk for a potentially dangerous system failure and easily achieve a tolerable corresponding risk level for their safety systems.
SCAME will be integrated into the Fire business within Honeywell Home and Building Technologies.
