Carrier to shutter Indianapolis plant, costing 1,400 jobs

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An Indianapolis manufacturing facility is moving operations to Mexico, impacting 1,400 jobs.

Carrier, currently located on West Morris Street, will be moving operations to Monterrey, Mexico beginning in 2017. The move is expected to be complete in 2019.

A release by the company said there would be no immediate impact on jobs.

The company says the proposal to move is subject to “discussions with local union representatives.”

“This decision is difficult and we recognize the impact on employees, their families and the community. We are committed to ensuring that our employees are treated respectfully and to working closely with their representatives throughout this transition,” said Chris Nelson, President of HVAC Systems and Services North America.

A Carrier spokesperson says that the HVAC residential headquarters and engineering positions will remain in Indianapolis.
