INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two Indiana plants that make products for the heating, ventilating and air conditioning industry are shifting their manufacturing operations to Mexico in moves that will cost 2,100 workers their jobs.
Carrier Corp. announced Wednesday it would shutter its Indianapolis plant where workers make heating, ventilating and air conditioning equipment and move that manufacturing to Mexico.
The company said it would lay off its 1,400 workers over three years starting in 2017.
United Technologies Electronic Controls also announced Wednesday will move its Huntington manufacturing plant to a new plant in Mexico, costing the northeastern Indiana city 700 jobs.
UTEC makes microprocessor-based controls for the heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration industries.
Both Carrier Corp. and UTEC are units of United Technologies Corp., which is based in Hartford, Connecticut.
