BOEING IN HUNTSVILLE
Boeing has played a vital role in building the United States’ space and defense programs in Alabama for more than 50 years, and is the largest aerospace company in the state. Approximately 3,000 employees work at Boeing’s two main facilities in Huntsville, located just off the interstate in North Alabama, the region is home to Huntsville International Airport, the U.S. Army’s Redstone Arsenal and NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. The city’s revitalized downtown is rich in history, culinary and art experiences, and the Tennessee River Valley offers ample outdoor activity.
Key programs underway in Huntsville include Ground-based Midcourse Defense; PAC-3 Missile Seeker and other missile defense systems; the Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM); NASA’s heavy-lift Space Launch System; and the International Space Station. Boeing Research & Technology develops innovations that apply across commercial, defense and space programs. Boeing Global Services supports a variety of Department of Defense platforms, including Army programs in Alabama. Boeing assembles electronic boxes and circuit cards at the company’s Fabrication Center of Excellence in Huntsville.
Huntsville is a growing region, with the highest ratio of engineers in the U.S. and a cost of living 10% below the national average.
