Honeywell is to invest $84 million to expand its Olathe manufacturing facility in Kansas. The project is expected to generate nearly $47 million in total gross domestic product and contribute $18.3 million to state and local taxes in the first six years.
The expansion will create one of Honeywell's most technologically advanced aerospace manufacturing facilities. The 560,000-square-foot facility currently manufactures components for Honeywell's avionics, safety and flight control systems and complex radio frequency systems for traffic collision avoidance, radar altimeters and weather radar.
Annual operations of the newly expanded facility will create ongoing economic benefits that include directly employing an additional 156 workers at the facility and supporting more than 200 jobs in other sectors of the Kansas economy.
"Expanding this facility will enable the development of a strong and resilient domestic supply chain for next generation avionics and printed circuit board assemblies that our commercial and military customers can rely on," says Jim Currier, president and CEO, Honeywell Aerospace Technologies. "At Honeywell, we are in constant need of highly skilled employees, particularly in engineering and advanced manufacturing, and our decision to expand one of our U.S.-based facilities is a testament to our confidence in the U.S. economy and its talented workforce."
"The hard-working men and women of Kansas have earned a reputation within the aviation manufacturing community for quality work, and today's announcement is further evidence of that," says local U.S. Senator Jerry Moran. "Honeywell's decision to expand its operations in Kansas will help bolster the U.S. domestic industrial base in the aviation sector."
