Boeing Is Bringing More Jobs to the Space Coast!

Posted on: November 1, 2011

The Boeing Company recently announced that it will be taking over Kennedy Space Center’s Orbiter Processing Facility-3 for at least the next 15 years, in order to assemble a privately operated spacecraft. This is a first-of-its-kind deal for Kennedy Space Center, as it transitions from the retired shuttle program to a future of commercial space operations. Over the next few years, Boeing is expecting to hire 550 local employees to assemble, test, and refurbish its CST-100 capsule for trips to the International Space Station. According to Boeing, about 70 percent of these new positions will be classified as engineering jobs. It is expected that associated suppliers will be basing more jobs in the state of Florida, and specifically the Space Coast, creating additional jobs for our local workforce.

This is fantastic news for Florida’s Space Coast for so many reasons! First, Kennedy Space Center’s facility will be put to great use in creating the next generation of spacecraft. Second, our highly skilled/highly educated workforce will be returning to Kennedy Space Center to support future space travel. Third, with an increase in high paying jobs coming to our area, comes an increase in the desire for real estate on the Space Coast!
