To expand its sensing and control portfolio, Honeywell reports that it's agreed to acquire Lebow Corp., which manufactures automotive and aerospace force and torque sensors and load cells. Lebow will become part of Honeywell's Sensing and Control business unit. The transaction is expected to close in 2005's third quarter, pending some customary conditions. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"The acquisition of Lebow expands our offering of load-cell products, but even more exciting is it takes us to an entirely new level in our offering of torque sensors," says Ron Sansom, president of Honeywell's Sensing and Control group. "Ultimately, this acquisition significantly increases solutions we offer customers in the test-and-measurement world."

The Sensing and Control division manufactures sensors, switches, machine safeguarding, and other devices for a variety of OEM applications in automotive, aviation, medical, information technology, consumer appliance, and industrial businesses. Other recent acquisitions made by Honeywell's Sensing and Control business unit include Sensotec in 2003 and Invensys Sensor Systems in 2002.
