Spirit's space

  • 26-Sep-2008 10:14 EDT

Spirit AeroSystems has selected its Wichita, KS, facility as the site for design and manufacture of the fuselage for the new Cessna Citation Columbus, for which the supplier will build a new 375,000-ft² factory. The facility will also provide additional capacity for existing products and other new programs. Over the next five years, Spirit expects to invest approximately $260 million and create an estimated 700 jobs with a projected annual payroll of more than $42 million in the state of Kansas, as the company executes its business plan for multiple new programs. Work will begin immediately on the new facility.
