Scott applauds Boeing’s move to Florida


Boeing announced on Wednesday that it will relocate its space and launch division’s headquarters from Virginia to Brevard County. The headquarters, which are currently in Arlington, Va., will move to Titusville, near Kennedy Space Center and other space facilities.

“The time is right for us to locate our space headquarters where so much of our space history was made over the past six decades and where so much history awaits,” said Leanne Caret, president and chief executive officer of Boeing Defense, Space & Security. The move was praised by Gov.

Ron DeSantis and U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla. “This great announcement affirms our state’s position as a national leader in innovation and job growth and will bring increased investment to the Space Coast,” DeSantis tweeted.

“Our state is proud to have Boeing officially move their space division to Florida’s Space Coast. The space industry has long been an important and iconic part of Florida’s history and economic success, and with our incredible business climate and low taxes, it’s no surprise that Boeing chose our great state. Today’s announcement is great news for our growing Space Coast community and will create more jobs for hardworking Florida families.”-Sen. Rick Scott
