MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Honeywell International Inc. said Wednesday that 850 employees are being laid off at its plants in Roseville, Hopkins and Minnetonka as part of its 6,500 worldwide job cuts announced last week.
Barbara Nelson, the company's Minneapolis-area spokeswoman, said more than 400 of the 850 salaried and hourly employees already were on temporary layoff.
Nelson said advanced circuitry production will stop immediately at the Honeywell Advanced Circuits plants in Roseville and Hopkins, then the company will work out what products will be made where.
The Honeywell division manufactures high technology printed circuit boards and is cutting back because the marketplace is flooded with such products, Nelson said.
However, she said Honeywell is not getting out of making printed circuit boards, but is restructuring the business to three areas.
