NEW YORK, March 18, 2004 -This week, Honeywell (NYSE:HON) Process Solutions brings its most innovative solutions and services for pharmaceutical, biologics and biotech manufacturers to New York's Jacob K.

pharmaceutical company, has invested $500,000 in the POMS® clinical manufacturing solution to ensure consistent deployment of best business practices across its research and development facilities in the United Kingdom and the United States.
