At this year's Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Best Practices Awards, HIMA has been awarded the Growth Excellence Leadership Award for the process safety systems industry.
HIMA has demonstrated outstanding achievement and excellent performance in areas of leadership and technological innovation for major projects in Asia Pacific.
The company is continuously investing in research and development to come up with solutions for the digital age. Many of its products are the first in the world to be certified by TÜV, the global testing and certification company. Its smart safety solutions for industrial applications are used in various industries, particularly in oil and gas, chemicals, energy and rail.
“With Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) gaining the attention of major automation systems suppliers, HIMA recognises the need to increase security levels to protect industrial assets. From providing emergency shutdown systems (ESD) to chemical plants in Malaysia to ensuring the safety of a gas storage facility in Australia, the company allows end users operating different brands to successfully integrate their systems with its own. Establishing itself as an independent process safety solutions provider in more than 50 locations around the world, the HIMA brand is now synonymous with process safety,” said Krishnan Ramanathan, Industry Analyst, Industrial Automation and Process Control, Frost & Sullivan.
Coincidentally, this year marks the 110th anniversary of the founding of HIMA.
“In the year of our 110th anniversary, we are still leading the safety market forward with innovative solutions for the digital industrial age,” says Friedhelm Best, Vice President of HIMA Asia Pacific. “Digitisation creates entirely new requirements for plant operators in the industrial sectors. They need solutions that not only protect plants and employees in the event of a disaster, but also effectively counter cyberattacks and boost the long-term profitability of plants. For this digital age, we have pioneered the smart safety solutions.”
