Earlier this week, Boeing announced that it was studying the future of its Wichita site, including whether to close the facility. The company said in a statement Monday that its Wichita facility – which employs about 2,100 people – faces a number of issues, including defense budget cuts, product and service contracts that have matured and expired, and limited prospects for future work.
