Huntington’s Largest Manufacturer Moving 700 Jobs To Mexico

Huntington County’s largest manufacturer is moving 700 jobs to Mexico over the next two years. United Technologies Electronic Controls announced that because key customers like Carrier are moving and taking thousands of jobs with them to Mexico, they would need to move with them to remain competitive.

The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reports that 100 employees will stay behind. UTEC is not commenting and does not have to make anything official with the state until 60 days before those jobs are actually eliminated.
