Carrier Statement Regarding Indianapolis Operations – Nov. 3, 2017
As part of our previously announced plans to relocate fan coil manufacturing production lines from Indianapolis, approximately 215 employees will leave Carrier on Jan. 11, 2018. This is a change from the previously announced date in December.
More than 1,100 jobs remain at the Indianapolis facility in keeping with our 2016 commitment. Jan. 11 is the final separation date for employees impacted by the fan coil manufacturing transition. Fewer employees than expected have been impacted due to attrition.
We continue to actively engage with our workers and the community to provide impacted employees with resources to make a smooth transition, including education, training and an opportunity for employment across UTC’s manufacturing operations.
Carrier is proud to continue to manufacture gas furnaces in Indianapolis. We have also designated our Indianapolis facility as a Center of Excellence for gas furnace production, with a commitment to making significant investments to enable a world-class furnace factory.
United Technologies, Carrier’s parent company, announced in June that over the next three years it expects to hire nearly 25,000 people in the U.S., of which more than 5,000 new positions will be created in support of the company’s innovative new products.
