Raytheon is moving “a small number of positions” from Fort Wayne to its Forest, Mississippi, plant to more effectively use facilities, a spokeswoman said Friday.

The local operation is reducing its local facility footprint, which will result in some jobs going south, Corinne Kennedy wrote in an email response to a Journal Gazette query. She declined to say how many workers are affected.

“We will continue to maintain a strong engineering presence in Fort Wayne,” she said. “We routinely monitor all aspects of our business, including real estate, to ensure we remain positioned to deliver innovative, high value solutions to our customers.”

Rumors that the entire local operation is being relocated to Mississippi are not true, she said.
