Boeing to relocate Space and Launch division HQ to Titusville

After six decades of developing a presence in Florida's coastal region, billion-dollar aerospace giant Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) announced it will relocate its Space and Launch division to Titusville from Arlington, Virginia, by the end of this year. “Boeing has been a dominant presence on the Space Coast for six decades, and this move represents a continuation of that legacy and future commitment," said Jim Chilton, senior vice president of Space and Launch, in a statement. Shifting manufacturing and freight to the eastern coastline of Florida offers the company greater proximity to the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Kennedy Space Center and Patrick Air Force Base.
