Dec. 3, 2018: Honeywell officials announced on Friday, Nov. 30, 2018, that they plan to move the company’s global corporate Headquarters office from Morris Plains, N.J., to Charlottee. Honeywell officials on Nov. 30 also announced that they plan to relocate the Headquarters of the company’s Safety and Productivity Solutions division from Fort Mill, S.C., to Charlotte. “As part of the move, about 150 to 200 New Jersey-based senior management positions and about 100 South Carolina-based positions will relocate to Charlotte between now and September 2019,” Honeywell officials said in a statement. “The company envisions gradually adding about 500 Honeywell corporate and SPS positions to the Charlotte location over the next five years, bringing total employment there to about 750 by the end of 2024. Any corporate roles that will be added in Charlotte will come from multiple locations, not just New Jersey.” “Today's announcement reflects our commitment to locate our corporate headquarters close to our large centers in Charlotte alongside Safety and Productivity Solutions, and Atlanta, where our Honeywell Building Technologies and Honeywell Connected Enterprise businesses are located. Charlotte is a top-10 destination city in the U.S. that will readily enable us to recruit and retain the world-class talent we will need over the long term to support Honeywell's strategic focus on leading technology and software solutions within our end markets," said Darius Adamczyk, Honeywell Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, in a statement. "We also are strong believers in supporting our communities, and we look forward to bringing Honeywell Hometown Solutions – our award-winning corporate citizenship initiative – to the Charlotte area. Our decision does not reflect any issues with the quality of our experience in New Jersey. We value the strong relationship that we have built with the state of New Jersey and with Governor Murphy. New Jersey will remain a substantial employment center for us." About one-thousand Honeywell employees are scheduled to remain in New Jersey at the company's six locations in the state, including about eight-hundred employees at Honeywell's offices in Morris Plains, officials said. “Fort Mill will also continue to be a significant employment center for Honeywell,” the officials said.
