Boeing Will Cut Some Executives And Sell Several Properties
Faced with financial difficulties, the American concern Boeing intends to reduce the number of middle-level executives, as well as sell a number of real estate objects, Bloomberg reports, citing sources.
According to him, about 170 "middle-level managers," 70 of whom work in the commercial aircraft division, accepted the offer to leave the Corporation, has received an annual salary.
It's worth noting that the most "controversial" cost-saving measure that the American company is considering, among others, is the ability to focus the construction of 787 Dreamliners on one site — most likely at a facility in South Carolina — and close the second final Assembly line in Everett (Washington).
Earlier it was reported that this year Boeing plans to reduce about 10% of the total number of employees in 160 thousand people against the background of reduced production of Airliners: airlines do not buy new aircraft due to a drop in passenger traffic, in April the concern did not receive a single order for the supply of aircraft.
Boeing produces a wide range of civil and military aircraft and develops space programs. Boeing has two major divisions: Boeing Commercial Airplanes, which builds civil aircraft, and Integrated Defense Systems, which performs space and military programs.
