In mid-July, Gov. Mary Fallin, along with a number of state and community leaders, praised Boeing aerospace company as it cut a blue ribbon symbolizing the $80 million, 290,000-square-foot facility was open for business in southeast Oklahoma City.

According to NewsOK.com, leaders praised an aerospace engineers tax credit for luring Boeing, which in return promised 800 new jobs. The company is known for designing, manufacturing and selling airplanes, rotorcrafts, rockets and satellites. Boeing moved operations from Washington to Oklahoma City; St. Louis, Missouri; Jacksonville, Florida; and Patuxent River, Maryland.

A week after the OKC fanfare, Boeing handed layoff notices to OKC employees, NewsOK.com reported. The company was mum on the number of workers impacted by the potential layoffs.

“Boeing is still committed to doing business in Oklahoma,” Jennifer Hogan, a Boeing spokeswoman, told NewsOK.com.
