Business Update | Carrier Corporation

In December of 2016, then President-Elect Donald Trump brokered a deal with the Carrier Corporation and the state of Indiana to keep an Indianapolis factory from closing. Carrier was offered approximately $7 million in government incentives, and the deal preserved about 800 jobs and kept the Indianapolis plant open.
What is the status of this deal today?
Despite the factory being kept open, approximately 550 jobs are still being eliminated from the Indiana plant. In addition, a Huntington, Indiana plant not included in the deal will also be closing and outsourcing jobs to Mexico. It is estimated that around 700 jobs will be lost in the closing. The New York Times speculates that another 800 jobs at Carrier could be lost to automation.
Employees at another Indianapolis plant were not so lucky. Rexnord recently closed its Indianapolis plant, outsourcing approximately 300 jobs to Mexico. Trump’s deal with Carrier was an unusual negotiation, and so far he has not repeated the process with other manufacturing facilities.
