Plano, Texas site selected for Boeing Global Services headquarters

Boeing [NYSE: BA] has selected the Legacy West mixed-use development in West Plano, Texas, for the headquarters of its new Global Services business unit, which will be operational in July, the company said.

Global Services President and CEO Stan Deal, several of his leadership team members, and some support staff will be located at the site, which will serve as a central hub for approximately 20,000 employees located around the globe.

Boeing selected the greater Dallas area because it is centrally located within Boeing´s US footprint, has good proximity to major operations for commercial customers and defense partners, and serves as a transportation hub that will allow the company to reach customers quickly and efficiently.

Global Services integrates the services capabilities of the defense, space and commercial sectors into a single, customer-focused business. Operating as a third business unit of Boeing, Global Services will provide services to commercial and defense customers worldwide.

The Boeing Company, together with its subsidiaries, designs, develops, manufactures, sells, services, and supports commercial jetliners, military aircraft, satellites, missile defense, human space flight, and launch systems and services worldwide.
