USA: Management Honeywell Shifts Global Headquarters to Charlotte, North Carolina
The new headquarters will be located in close proximity to the company’s businesses in Southeast United States. Also, numerous New Jersey-based and South Carolina-based positions will be transferred to the new office.
New Jersey/USA – Honeywell has recently announced that it will relocate its global corporate headquarters to Charlotte, North Carolina, a business and family-friendly city close to several of Honeywell's businesses in the Southeast United States.
The company also announced that it will relocate the headquarters of its Safety and Productivity Solutions (SPS) business group from Fort Mill, South Carolina, to Charlotte. The final decision is subject to the recently passed North Carolina Job Development Investment Grant (JDIG) legislation becoming law and the final award of state and local incentives, which the company expects to be completed early next week.
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. 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.
Approximately 1,000 employees will remain in New Jersey across the company's six locations in the state, including about 800 employees at the firm’s offices in Morris Plains. Fort Mill will also continue to be a significant employment center for the company.
