More details have emerged about Rockwell Collins’ reorganization plan once the company is acquired by United Technologies.
The new company will be called Collins Aerospace Systems. According to an announcement on Thursday, executives will be based in Florida and the new company will be divided into six units. The avionics and missions systems units will be based in Cedar Rapids.
A company news release indicated a “significant footprint” would be maintained in Cedar Rapids, but there was no indication of how many people would remain on the job in Cedar Rapids facilities.
About eight thousand people work for Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids, making it the city’s largest employer.
