Resideo, which officially completed its spin-off from Honeywell in late October, announced on Wednesday that it will be opening a new headquarters and software development center in Austin, Texas, next year.
According to a statement issued by the company, the building, which will be located at 901 E. Sixth St., will be home to approximately 120 employees of the smart home technology company, including most of its executive leadership team. The headquarters, which will also feature a new customer experience center, is slated to open during the first half of 2019.
“The Lone Star State continues to attract the best and most innovative companies from every sector of the economy, and I am thrilled that Resideo has chosen to be a part of our success story,” said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. “With low taxes, reasonable regulations, and a strong workforce, Texas has created an economic environment that allows businesses to flourish. I thank Resideo for their investment, and I look forward to working together to keep Texas the premier state for economic opportunity.”
“Resideo is a leader in smart home technology through our 100,000 professional contractors in the ‘do-it-for-me’ channel,” said Mike Nefkens, president and CEO of Resideo. “Austin has a rich history and is packed with creative energy, making it the perfect fit as we merge the 130-year heritage of Resideo’s Honeywell Home brand with next-generation technology to simplify the smart home experience.”
