Boeing to open new engineering facility in Florida

(Reuters) – Boeing announced on Tuesday the opening of a new engineering center in Florida for its defense and government services portfolios and aims to hire nearly 200 engineering positions this year.

Initial plans for the Daytona Beach facility include employees performing engineering work for military aircraft programs and advanced technology capabilities, with an emphasis on engineering design, research, development and prototyping.

Boeing Daytona Beach is expected to be operational by late fall, with the aircraft maker expecting hiring for the facility to nearly double over the next few years.

Earlier Tuesday, Boeing said it delivered 24 commercial planes in May, about half of the 50 planes delivered to its customers in the same month a year earlier, while continuing to operate a slower assembly line to complete pending work.
