Boeing’s St. Louis County plants prepares for potential Air Force order
Fifteen years since the Hazelwood plant delivered its last order for the Air Force, Boeing is prepping for what it says is renewed interest from the government.
“The biggest ask from our customer, the Air Force, is rapid field deployment,” said Prat Kumar, a Boeing vice president and program manager of F-15 programs. “Unless we kind of invest ahead of the opportunity, we won’t be in a position to respond to that. As you can see we are putting an effort into getting ready.”
