    Statement from Honeywell

    Due to the significant challenges of the nuclear industry globally and the oversupply of uranium hexafluoride (UF6), Honeywell plans to reduce the production capacity of the Metropolis plant to better align with the demands of nuclear fuel customers. Because of this, the company intends to reduce its full-time workforce by 22 positions, as well as a portion of the plant’s contractor team. We are taking this action to better position the plant moving forward. We will continue to operate with a focus on safety, quality, delivery and service.

    The Metropolis Works maintains a Rapid Notify phone emergency system to inform community members of emergencies at the facility that require neighbors to take shelter if needed. The system automatically calls residents located within 1.3 miles of the facility based on publicly available records from local telephone service providers. If you have an unlisted phone number or would also like notifications to your cell phone, please send us your name, phone number and address so that we can update our listing. Information will only be used in case of emergency. Send an email to: MTW_Community@Honeywell.com, or a letter to Honeywell Metropolis, ATTN: Rapid Notify system, P.O. Box 430, Metropolis, IL 62960.
