Boeing Relocating 550 Positions from California to Oklahoma

08/05/2010
The Boeing Company has announced it will relocate the C-130 Avionics Modernization Program (AMP) and B-1 Program from Long Beach, California, to Oklahoma City. Both programs are part of the Maintenance, Modifications & Upgrades (MM&U) division of the Global Services & Support (GS&S) business unit of Boeing Defense, Space & Security. About 550 of the 800 positions in these programs in Southern California will be moved. Some employees will be relocated, while other positions will be posted and hired locally in Oklahoma City.

"Making a decision like this is never easy, but as we reviewed our anticipated operating costs for the next several years, it became clear that Boeing needs to take major actions on these programs in order to remain affordable for our customers," said MM&U Vice President and General Manager Mark Bass.

Headquartered in St. Louis, Boeing Defense, Space & Security is a $34 billion business with 68,000 employees worldwide.
