(INDIANAPOLIS) - Another Indianapolis company has "tentatively decided" to move jobs to Monterrey, Mexico.

Rexnord Bearings announced to its employees Friday that some jobs were going to be moved out of the country beginning in 2017, according to the union that represents those employees.

The move comes just 8 months after Carrier workers found out their jobs were being phased out of an Indianapolis manufacturing plant and instead moved to Carrier's facility in Monterrey.

Rexnord's Indianapolis plant is located on the city's west side, at 7641 Rockville Road. The Indy plant makes ball bearings, roller bearings and other associated products.

The union says 350 Indianapolis-based employees are affected by the move, which will happen between April and June of 2017.

A Rexnord spokesperson released the following statement about the decision:

Rexnord has tentatively decided to relocate its Indianapolis, Indiana manufacturing operations to an existing Rexnord manufacturing facility with capacity in Monterrey, Mexico.

We understand, recognize and respect that in these circumstances discussion and openness with the Steelworkers Union is an important step. We have invited the Union to join us in an open and frank discussion over this potential relocation and the impact it would have on Rexnord associates and their families.

While no final decision has been made, completion of the potential relocation process would be targeted for April through June 2017.

Carrier announced in February that 1,400 jobs from their west-side manufacturing plant would be moving to Monterrey.
