Boeing Co. is moving 500 jobs to its north St. Louis County campus from California.
The jobs moving to St. Louis County from Huntington Beach, Calif., are part of a consolidation of the company’s Defense, Space & Security business headquartered in the St. Louis area, a spokeswoman said.
She also said the jobs are professional-level positions ranging from engineering to finance.
Additionally, Boeing announced Tuesday that it’s closing its El Paso, Texas, and Newington, Va., sites.
The consolidation is part of an effort to enhance efficiency and promote greater collaboration, the company said, adding that new facilities will not be necessary in the St. Louis area for the added jobs.
