Boeing moving missile defense office to Alabama

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - The Boeing Co. is relocating the headquarters for its missile defense systems division to north Alabama from Virginia.

The decision announced Tuesday means between 40 and 50 jobs may
be transferred to the new location in Huntsville by the end of the year.

The office has been located in Arlington, Va., managing the work of about 3,500 people nationwide.

Boeing is the largest aerospace company in Alabama and one of the state's largest employers. It already has about 3,200 employees in Alabama, with most in the Tennessee Valley near Redstone Arsenal
and NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center.
