Rockwell Collins has released a proposed organizational structure for a new entity that would be formed once United Technologies Corp. completes its acquisition of the Cedar Rapids, Iowa-based avionics contractor, The Gazette reported Thursday.
Farmington, Connecticut-based UTC agreed to buy Rockwell Collins in September 2017 for approximately $30 billion and will combine the latter company with the conglomerate“™s aerospace systems division to create a new business unit that will run as Collins Aerospace Systems.
Rockwell Collins said Collins Aerospace’s executive leadership team will work through a small office at UTC“™s existing location in Palm Beach County, Florida.
Collins Aerospace will operate its avionics and mission systems business segments in Cedar Rapids, the report added.
KWWL.com also reported that Collins Aerospace“™s interiors and mechanical systems business units will run in North Carolina.
The company“™s aerostructures and power and controls divisions will respectively operate in Chula Vista, California, and Windsor Locks, Connecticut.
UTC Aerospace Systems and Rockwell Collins said in a combined statement the proposed structure will “continue to evolve“ and seeks to minimize employee relocations and disruption.
