Honeywell, the conglomerate based in Morris Township, confirmed Thursday that it is closing its Moorestown aviation products site, resulting in the loss of as many as 50 jobs.
“We’ve made the difficult decision to close our Moorestown site by the end of the year and move production to other facilities,” Scott Sayres, director, communications, for Honeywell Aerospace, said in a statement. “This is not a decision we made lightly and we realize this, unfortunately, affects valued employees. We’re encouraging those employees to apply for other positions within Honeywell and will offer severance payments and outplacement assistance to those eligible.”
The closure of the unit was initially announced in January, and as part of the process, Honeywell issued a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, or WARN, notice to employees this week.
