Honeywell Expands Workforce in KC Region

by Mary Rooney | Mar 05, 2019

Honeywell has a significant presence in the Kansas City region with Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies (FM&T) in Kansas City, MO and Honeywell Aerospace in Olathe, KS. The company currently employs over 3,500 people in the region.

Honeywell Aerospace in Olathe, KS recently announced it would be expanding its workforce with hundreds of jobs over the next 18 months. The facility handles maintenance and refurbishment of aviation equipment and electronics and manufactures safety and flight control systems.

According to the Kansas City Star, the company is centralizing its repair and overhaul operations. The decision to move the jobs to the Olathe facility was due in part to the Kansas City area’s strong labor force, central location and lower cost of doing business.
