40/29 reports that Trane is closing a facility in Fort Smith that makes residential heating and air conditioning systems and transferring the work to plants in Florida, South Carolina, Georgia and Texas. The number of jobs affected was not specified.

A Trane plant in Fort Smith that makes commercial equipment is not affected, a company spokesman said.

Subsequent reports say the closing affects 250 jobs.
