Honeywell Aerospace’s is closing down its facility in Renton, resulting in 82 workers being permanently laid off effective Jan. 24 of next year, according to a federal WARN Act notice filed by the company.

The company confirmed this past February that it was moving some operations to its facility in the Kansas City suburb of Olathe, including an undisclosed number of jobs from Renton and Wichita, Kansas ― where it is closing a facility as well.

A report in the Puget Sound Business Journal earlier this year also confirmed that Honeywell Aerospace’s Renton office would be closing by the first quarter of next year, affecting an undisclosed number of jobs.

“Honeywell has decided to move repair and overhaul operations from Renton to Olathe,” the company said in a prepared statement. “We have, however, provided employees with extensive notice of this change as it was announced in February. We posted roles in Olathe and offered relocation assistance to interested, eligible employees.”

The company also said it would offer affected workers severance and outplacement assistance, if eligible. Honeywell Aerospace is a manufacturer of aircraft engines, avionics and other aviation products.
