OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Boeing Co. says it is relocating two
programs from Long Beach, Calif., to Oklahoma City, a move expected
to bring 550 engineering jobs to the state.
Boeing is moving its C-130 Avionics Modernization program to
Oklahoma City beginning in the first quarter of 2011. The move of
the B-1 program is expected toward the end of 2012.
Both programs are part of the Maintenance, Modifications &
Upgrades division of the company's St. Louis-based Boeing Defense,
Space & Security.
MM&U Vice President and General Manager Mark Bass says the
relocation will help Boeing "provide a more competitive cost
structure for customers."
Boeing says some California employees will be relocated, while
other positions will be hired locally.
