Honeywell has acquired Rebellion Photonics, a provider of visual gas monitoring solutions.

Rebellion Photonics is recognised for its real-time monitoring platform that visually identifies and quantifies gas releases to quickly detect and analyses leaks to keep workers safe. 

The company will now become part of Honeywell’s Safety and Productivity Solutions business, which provides a range of gas detection technologies, safety gear, mobility solutions and software.

“To rapidly respond to a gas leak and keep their facilities safe, oil and gas, petrochemical and power companies are deploying Rebellion Photonics’ next generation visual monitoring technology powered by machine learning,” said John Waldron, President and CEO of Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions.

“This acquisition complements Honeywell’s strong portfolio and process technologies, automation and gas detection solutions and accelerates our transformation to a software-industrial company.”

“Honeywell is an amazing company and a recognised leader in our industry. We are excited to be part of their world-class family,” said Robert Kester, CEO of Rebellion Photonics.

“Automated visual monitoring is the future of gas leak detection. Combining our products with Honeywell’s platform will make this new industry standard for safety and environmental monitoring globally.”
