Boeing is seeking to bolster its Defense, Space & Security operations by adding jobs in Los Angeles County; St. Louis; and Hunstville, Alabama.
By doing so, Boeing hopes to make its Defense, Space & Security run more efficiently when it comes to facilities, consolidations and work movements.
“In order to push ourselves farther and win more business, we need to make the most of our resources and talent,” Defense, Space & Security President and CEO Leanne Caret said. “These steps will help us be a stronger partner for our customers worldwide.”
Boeing hopes to reduce the space of its facilities by about 4.5 million square feet by the end of 2020. By reducing the size of its facilities, Boeing will move positions currently located in Huntington Beach to El Segundo, Long Beach and Seal Beach in Southern California and move others to St. Louis and Huntsville, Alabama.
“Making better use of our facilities will enhance efficiency and promote greater collaboration,” Caret said. “This will help drive our global growth in Boeing’s second century.”
