Global aerospace giant Boeing will add an additional up to 400 research and technology jobs at its St. Louis County campus, Gov. Jay Nixon announced today. This is the second major St. Louis jobs announcement this year by Boeing, which currently employs approximately 15,000 workers in Missouri.
“This latest announcement by a long-time Show-Me State employer is a sign that Missouri continues to attract high-tech jobs in high-demand fields,” Gov. Nixon said. “Last year, Missouri had the third-fastest rate of tech job growth in the nation. It’s clear that with our highly trained workforce, our continued investments in education, and our strong relationship with great corporate partners like Boeing, Missouri’s economy will keep moving forward.”
