Boeing Wichita Closure To Bring Jobs To OKC

KSCB News - January 5, 2012 8:02 am

The closure of a major Boeing Co. complex
in Wichita, Kan., will bring about 1,000 jobs to Oklahoma City.
Boeing announced Wednesday that about engineering and management
900 jobs from Wichita and another 100 from Puget Sound, Wash., will
move to the capital city. In 2010, Boeing moved 550 jobs to
Oklahoma City from Long Beach, Calif.
Including jobs already in place before the moves, Oklahoma City
could have 2,300 Boeing employees by the time the Wichita plant is
shuttered at the end of 2013.
Oklahoma economic development officials welcome the move but the
reaction was muted out of sympathy for the impact the job losses
will have in Wichita.
Gov. Mary Fallin says she wants current Boeing employees to be
able to move their families to Oklahoma City.
