About Bendix/King

In 1999, AlliedSignal merged with Honeywell and adopted the Honeywell name to take advantage of the company’s universal recognition throughout the industries it serves as well as in households around the world. Shortly after the merger was completed, Honeywell announced that due to pilot recognition and loyalty, it would retain the Bendix/King brand.
