Neighbors disturbed by noise from Endicott BAE Systems factory
People who live near a BAE Systems facility in Union City have heard what one resident described as a “really, really irritating” racketeering in recent weeks.
The noise emanates from the company’s Power and Propulsion Systems building on Hayes Avenue in Endwell.
A woman who lives a few blocks away said it sounded like “an incredibly loud jet engine.” She said the noise was “so unbearable” that “you can’t hear yourself speak”.
A BAE Systems spokesperson said noise “is part of the normal testing process for a particular product line.” She said it was temporary and “this testing phase will be over soon.”
The resident who complained about the disturbing sound said she had heard it intermittently for a month or two in the morning or afternoon. She said it sometimes lasted five to ten minutes.
The BAE Systems unit supplies equipment for transport, military, maritime and rail companies around the world.
