Boeing now headquartered near DC
Boeing’s campus in Arlington VA, just outside Washington DC, is set to become the corporation’s new global headquarters. The aerospace and defence firm’s employees in the region, who specialise in airplane development and autonomous systems, already support various corporate functions from the site in the north of the federal state of Virginia. Boeing will simultaneously also maintain a significant presence at its location in Chicago and the surrounding region.
Greg Hyslop, Boeing’s chief engineer and its executive vice-president for engineering, testing and technology underlined the fact that “the future of Boeing is digital. By focusing our R&D and talent development in areas that support digital innovation we can fuel the introduction of cutting-edge capabilities. Our new hub in Northern Virginia will follow the successful implementation of this technology strategy in other regions.” (cj)
