Boeing's new headquarters for its Global Services business unit, which is expected to be the center for some 20,000 of the company’s global employees, will be in Plano.
Gov. Greg Abbott says Boeing’s decision reflects the state’s economic-friendly policies.
“Texas continues to be a global powerhouse in business expansion and relocation because of our economic policies that encourage industry leaders, like Boeing, to expand their operations here,” Abbott said. “As governor, I will continue to promote a low-tax and reasonable regulatory environment that removes barriers to entry and provides certainty for developing industries. I am proud to welcome Boeing’s new Global Services unit to Texas and look forward to working with them further to continue their expansion in the Lone Star State,” said Abbott.
Boeing will use a site in the Legacy West mixed-use development for its Global Services, from which unit President and CEO Stan Deal and members of the leadership team and support staff will be based out of starting in July.
“Through the partnership with our city and the many amenities of Legacy West, we look forward to helping Boeing Global Services deliver on its mission,” Plano Mayor Harry LaRosillere said.
