Air Force ups contract at Hazelwood Boeing site
The U.S. Air Force announced Tuesday a dramatic boost to a contract it had awarded Boeing Defense, Space & Security in 2014.
The Hazelwood, Mo.-based spinoff of Boeing Co. initially was awarded a $1.7 billion contract to produce weapons guidance kits, but the Air Force modified the amount to $3.2 billion, stating higher demand for the products and the need to replenish inventories.
The work will last through most of 2020 and will be completed solely in Hazelwood.
