Some Honey­well jobs head to area

Tampa Bay Times - - Business -

Honey­well Aero­space is clos­ing its plant in Al­bu­querque, N.M., and a small num­ber of those jobs are headed to its fa­cil­ity in Clear­wa­ter, the com­pany said Fri­day. “Honey­well has de­cided to move man­u­fac­tur­ing and en­gi­neer­ing op­er­a­tions from Al­bu­querque to other U.S. fa­cil­i­ties by the end of next year,” Honey­well spokesman Scott Sayres said in an email to the Tampa Bay Times. “This is not a de­ci­sion we made lightly as we re­al­ize this, un­for­tu­nately, af­fects val­ued em­ploy­ees. We’re en­cour­ag­ing em­ploy­ees to ap­ply for other Honey­well po­si­tions, in some cases of­fer­ing re­lo­ca­tion. El­i­gi­ble em­ploy­ees will be of­fered sev­er­ance and out­place­ment as­sis­tance.” Sayres said “a hand­ful of jobs” will be posted for the com­pany’s aero­space fa­cil­ity at U.S. 19 and Ulmer­ton Road. The Al­bu­querque Jour­nal re­ported that other po­si­tions from the 500,000square-foot New Mex­ico plant will go to Honey­well sites in Ari­zona and Puerto Rico. In New Mex­ico, the com­pany’s work has mainly con­cerned mil­i­tary and govern­ment con­tracts. The Jour­nal re­ported the com­pany be­lieves those op­er­a­tions can be more ef­fi­ciently man­aged by in­te­grat­ing them into other fa­cil­i­ties.
