Adamczyk said Honeywell has played a vital role in every phase of the Covid-19 pandemic, from providing N-95 masks and creating healthy building and aircraft products, to inventing a new container that can replace glass vials for vaccines.
Beyond Covid-19, Adamczyk said Honeywell continues its transformation from a hardware company to a software one. He said at their core, Honeywell is a controls company and it controls buildings, aircraft, machinery and more.
Adamczyk was also bullish on Honeywell's materials business, which is working on economically viable energy storage systems and sustainable plastic renewable products.
