Generac and Honeywell sign deal for standby generators

Generac will produce standby generators for Honeywell through 2015. 

Generac Power Systems, a leading manufacturer of backup power systems, and Honeywell, a leader in diversified technologies, have reached an agreement under which Generac will be the exclusive licensee of Honeywell branded portable and standby generators through 2015.

The Honeywell brand is well regarded throughout distribution and consumer markets and provides Generac the opportunity to expand distribution channels by raising category awareness and increasing residential consumer access to automatic standby generators.

Generac's product offering, support and market presence will build on the existing base of Honeywell generators in the portable generator segment.
Ranging from 800 Watts to 150 kW, Generac expects to launch the line of Honeywell portable and standby generators during 2011.
