INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Gov. Mike Pence has met with executives from a company planning to close two Indiana factories, but said afterward he didn’t want to give any false hope of the 2,100 jobs staying in the state.

Pence’s meeting at the Statehouse Wednesday with United Technologies Corp. executives came three weeks after the company announced it would shutter the factories in Indianapolis and Huntington and move the heating, ventilation and air conditioning machinery production to Mexico.

Pence says he was assured that the company would keep about 400 research-and-development and executive jobs in the state.

Company subsidiaries are closing a 1,400-worker Carrier Corp. plant in Indianapolis and a United Technologies Electronic Controls factory in Huntington with 700 jobs.

United Technologies executive Robert McDonough wouldn’t say whether those decisions might change.
