Honey­well plans to re­lo­cate from Abq.

Santa Fe New Mexican - - LOCAL & REGION -

AL­BU­QUERQUE — Honey­well Aero­space is plan­ning to move from Al­bu­querque, leav­ing po­ten­tially hun­dreds em­ploy­ees with­out jobs.

The Al­bu­querque Jour­nal re­ported the com­pany told em­ploy­ees Thurs­day that its Al­bu­querque op­er­a­tions would be moved to Honey­well sites in Ari­zona, Florida and Puerto Rico over the next year.

The global en­gi­neer­ing firm’s work in New Mex­ico is pri­mar­ily fo­cused on mil­i­tary and gov­ern­ment con­tracts.

The com­pany said those op­er­a­tions can be more ef­fi­ciently man­aged by in­te­grat­ing them into other fa­cil­i­ties.

The com­pany said in a state­ment that em­ploy­ees are en­cour­aged to ap­ply for po­si­tions at other lo­ca­tions, and sev­er­ance and out­place­ment as­sis­tance will be of­fered to el­i­gi­ble em­ploy­ees.

Al­bu­querque Mayor Tim Keller says he has in­structed the Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment Depart­ment to reach out to part­ners to see if work­ers can be con­nected with op­por­tu­ni­ties.
