Plano lands headquarters for Boeing’s new division

🕐 2 min read

Aerospace giant Boeing will join a growing list of corporations heading to Collin County.

Chicago-based Boeing has Plano’s Legacy West for the new headquarters for its global services division.

Global Services President and CEO Stan Deal, several members 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.

“Texas continues to be a global powerhouse in business expansion and relocation because of our economic policies that encourage industry leaders, like Boeing, to expand their operations here,” said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. “As governor, I will continue to promote a low-tax and reasonable regulatory environment that removes barriers to entry and provides certainty for developing industries. I am proud to welcome Boeing’s new Global Services unit to Texas and look forward to working with them further to continue their expansion in the Lone Star State.”

Boeing said it selected the greater Dallas area because it’s centrally located within Boeing’s U.S. 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.

The company expects to be up and operational at the site in July. Boeing has a big presence in Texas already. The company already employs more than 4,000 employees in the state at major sites in Houston, San Antonio and the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

“On behalf of the city of Plano, we are thrilled to welcome an iconic 100-year- innovative company like Boeing,” said Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere. “Through the partnership with our city and the many amenities of Legacy West, we look forward to helping Boeing Global Services deliver on its mission.”

In November 2016, Boeing announced the Global Services will be formed by integrating the services capabilities of the company’s defense, space and commercial sectors into a single, customer-focused business. Operating as a third business unit of Boeing, Global Services will provide agile, cost-competitive services to commercial and defense customers worldwide.

Boeing reported revenues of $94.6 billion for 2016.
