The history of the Bendix name runs parallel to the development of King Radio until the mid-1980s, when the Allied Corporation purchased Bendix Aviation and King Radio and combined the two to create the now-renowned BendixKing brand of avionics. In late 1985, the Allied Corporation merged with the Signal Companies to become Allied-Signal. The name was further modified to AlliedSignal in 1993 to reinforce a one-company image and signify the full integration of its business.
In 1999, AlliedSignal merged with Honeywell and adopted the Honeywell name to take advantage of the company’s universal recognition throughout the industries it serves, as well as in households around the world. Shortly after the merger was completed, Honeywell announced that due to pilot recognition and loyalty, it would retain the BendixKing brand for its general aviation avionics. Today, we are known as BendixKing by Honeywell.
In 2011, BendixKing established new business operations in Albuquerque, NM. The tradition of leadership and innovation continues with BendixKing. Along with our new business operations we have renewed our brand — and our promise — to design, build and support the best-performing, most innovative and cost-effective avionics products available for general aviation.
