Boeing officials announced plans Monday to consolidate the majority of Delta rocket production into the company’s facilities in Pueblo, Colo., and Decatur, Ala. The plan is a continuation of the Boeing facilities announcement made in March 1998 and will maximize the use of existing Delta facilities, which are currently 80 percent underutilized. Other contributing factors are the downturn in the global launch services market, which reduced Delta production by 50 percent since January 1999, and Boeing transitioning C-17 work out of the Huntington Beach facility. Over the next two years approximately 600 production jobs will be eliminated in manufacturing, half the reductions associated with C-17 manufacturing and half associated with the Delta realignment. In addition up to 300 positions will be eliminated in associated support functions.
