Hamilton Sundstrand Jobs & Machinery Moving

The machinery is so massive it required one of the largest planes in the world to transport it.

Hamilton Sundstrand says the equipment is used to make parts for aircraft engine generators. It was one of the main functions of the company's Rockford Manufacturing Department but that department has been relocated to Singapore where workers will earn wages of $8 an hour compared to $25 in Rockford.

A company spokeswoman says the move is necessary to stay competitive.
