Honeywell International Inc. is opening up a new facemask production operation at its Phoenix Engines campus in Phoenix. The location, on the north side of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, is one of the company’s largest and has been dedicated to the design and manufacturing of aircraft propulsion engines and auxiliary power units since 1950. It will continue to manufacture this equipment, as well as produce PPE.
Honeywell’s Darius Adamczyk says, “We have moved quickly to expand our production capacity for N95 masks globally, and are pleased to announce our second new U.S. manufacturing line to supply the Strategic National Stockpile.”
The Phoenix expansion, coupled with previously announced new production in Rhode Island, will allow Honeywell to produce more than 20 million N95 disposable masks monthly to combat COVID-19 in the U.S. Hiring is already underway for an estimated 500 or more new jobs in Arizona, which will bring the total between both operations to 1,000.
