Honeywell announced that it has significantly expanded its portfolio of laboratory chemicals used in drug discovery and research and development in Europe. The products are sold globally under the Honeywell Burdick & JacksonR (B&J) brand name.

The B&J portfolio has been expanded to more than 900 solutions, salts and acids, up from 200 items a years ago. Products for the European market are almost exclusively manufactured at Honeywell Specialty Chemicals Seelze GmbH in Seelze near Hanover, Germany, the former Riedel-de Haën company, which was founded in 1814 and later acquired by Honeywell.

"Delivering products that meet a high and consistent standard of quality is one of the core competencies of our Seelze operations," said Dr. Joachim Pavel, business manager for the Honeywell laboratory chemicals business in Europe. "Our aim is to significantly expand our sales of laboratory chemicals in Europe over the next three years."

Since 2007, Honeywell has sold its product in sizes ranging as high as 45 liters in Germany and Austria through OMNI Life Science GmbH & Co. KG, Hamburg, a distributor for Honeywell. Pavel said Honeywell plans to expand its distribution network to cover the whole of Europe.
