Honeywell has added 500 new jobs in Phoenix for the manufacturing of N-95 face masks and personal protection equipment.
The opening of the facility in Phoenix will increase Honeywell’s mask production capacity to more than 20 million monthly. The equipment is arriving in Phoenix this week. A similar expansion is underway in Rhode Island.
Production will take place at Honeywell’s Phoenix Engines campus, the company’s largest such facility, on the north side of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
The N95 face masks will be delivered to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to contribute to the American stockpile for use to support health, safety and emergency response workers. The Phoenix facility will prioritize fulfilling the U.S. government’s procurement and will have the capacity to produce face masks for U.S. states and American healthcare and emergency response organizations.
Honeywell’s production expansion will also support American businesses, including industrial equipment providers and raw materials suppliers. The company is collaborating with state and local officials to ramp up production efforts and support hiring and training.
