The truth about Carrier moving production to Mexico

Why Carrier is the right choice for me. And for you.

Recently, Carrier announced that it will be relocating its manufacturing operations from Indianapolis, Indiana, to Monterrey, Mexico.  Many people have used this news as an opportunity to claim that Carrier doesn't care about its employees.

As both an American worker and a Carrier® dealer, I know nothing is further from the truth.

Myths vs. facts of Carrier move to mexico

 

Carrier is not alone in having manufacturing facilities in Mexico:

The fact is: Almost every HVAC Manufacturer in existence has moved some type of production to Mexico.

Three of the companies are actually Headquartered overseas. Daikin= Osaka, Japan Trane/Am Std (IRCO)=Dublin, Ireland York / Johnson Controls (Tyco) = Cork, Ireland. Corporate profits and Taxes do not come to the USA.
