Space Coast to host Boeing Space and Launch HQNews
June 19, 2019
ARLINGTON, Va. To strengthen collaboration and integration across its portfolio, Boeing is relocating the headquarters of its Space and Launch division to Titusville, on Florida?s revitalized Space Coast.
Space and Launch, a division of Boeing Defense, Space & Security, currently has its headquarters in Arlington, Va.
Boeing leaders said the timing of the move makes sense because the relocation of the headquarters will be situated in a region that includes Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Patrick Air Force Base, allowing the company to enhance its focus on mission integration and launch system operations. Another benefit of the relocation will be the strengthening of relationships with Air Force Space Command in Colorado and Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
The CST-100 Starliner commercial spacecraft is preparing for two flight tests later this year ahead of operational missions to the International Space Station beginning in 2020, reiterating the opportune timing of the move.
According to the company, the headquarters move will have no impact on Boeing’s space operations in other states, including California, Texas, Alabama, Colorado and Louisiana.
