PHOENIX — Honeywell will be opening a facility in Chandler to produce critical personal protective equipment, Mayor Kevin Hartke announced in his State of the City address Thursday.

The company has committed to a long-term lease on a more than 150,000-square-foot location in west Chandler, where it will produce N95 masks and other PPE for health care and government use.

“In addition to the much-needed safety products that will be made at this facility, the manufacturing operations will also provide a significant job infusion to Chandler,” Hartke said.

Honeywell is expected to hire hundreds of workers for manufacturing at the location in the first year, with potential growth for more jobs in the next three years.

“Fortune 100 companies like Honeywell can choose anywhere in the world to locate their manufacturing facilities like this and we are very proud that Honeywell chose Chandler,” Hartke said.

In April, Honeywell expanded production at its Phoenix aerospace facility to manufacture N95 face masks and other personal protective gear during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Former President Donald Trump toured the manufacturing plant in May during a visit to Phoenix.
