Chamber Statement on Honeywell Move to Morris Plains

MORRIS COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE PRESIDENT PAUL BOUDREAU
ISSUES STATEMENT ON MOVE OF HONEYWELL TO MORRIS PLAINS


Florham Park, NJ – February 26, 2013
The president of the Morris County Chamber of Commerce, Paul Boudreau, today issued the following statement about the decision of Honeywell to move to Morris Plains, where it is purchasing property and buildings from McNeil-PPC, Inc., a Johnson & Johnson company.

 

“The announcement today by Honeywell that the company will move its world headquarters to Morris Plains is a win/win for Morris County and our state of New Jersey. We now have certainty about Honeywell’s plans for the future and we are ecstatic that more than 1,000 high-paying jobs will remain in our community.

 

“Honeywell’s decision has two additional upsides for Morris County. First, their decision represents a net positive absorption of 475,000 square feet of existing office space in Morris Plains. Second, Morris Township has a new opportunity to determine a path forward for creating ratables and jobs on the existing Honeywell property in the years ahead.

 

“The Morris County Chamber of Commerce has been an advocate for keeping Honeywell in New Jersey. Congratulations to the Christie administration, the Township of Morris and the Borough of Morris Plains for making it happen.”
