Corridor Business Journal: Rockwell Collins plans to outsource manufacturing of mechanical assemblies for its products now performed in Cedar Rapids, a move that will eliminate 105 mostly union jobs. “A thorough business analysis shows that over the past several several years, our fabrication operation continues to operate at a loss and we do not see any long-term recovery,” the company said in a prepared statement. “Transitioning this work to external suppliers will allow us to focus on our core products while better managing costs and assets.” The transition will be completed by spring 2019, the company said.
