Honeywell to shut Montreal plant, shift jobs to P.E.I. and U.S.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE CANADIAN PRESS Published Thursday February 28th, 2008

 

MONTREAL - Honeywell International is closing its 81-year-old Montreal repair and overhaul facility that employs 200 people as it shifts work to Prince Edward Island and the United States.

 

The facility is being shut over the next six months because of a reduced demand for auxiliary power units on older model planes and the U.S. Air Force's decision to complete the work in house, Honeywell spokesman Bill Reavis said Thursday.

 

Honeywell's decision follows the company's efforts to manage its costs in a competitive global aerospace industry, he said.

 

Employees, including the 130 union workers, will have an opportunity to apply for other positions in Honeywell after the work is moved to Summerside, P.E.I. and several facilities in the U.S.

 

More than 100 people work at Honeywell's P.E.I. facility.
