Hawker Beechcraft CEO Bill Boisture reiterated Monday that the company will make a series of decisions over the next few months about the future footprint of the company in Wichita.
Boisture was the keynote speaker today at the Downtown Rotary Club luncheon at Botanica.
He did not give a time frame for when a decision would be made about whether the company will take Louisiana up on its incentive offer to move work to Baton Rouge.
Hawker Beechcraft has already received interest from developers about space it is vacating as it moves work to outside suppliers and Mexico, part of a plan that will cut about 800 jobs, he said in an interview after the speech.
Never miss a local story.
Between work that will be moved from facilities in Wichita and Salina, Hawker Beechcraft is closing roughly 1 million square feet of manufacturing space.
"Over time, they'll be put to good use," Boisture said of the vacant plants.
The company is limited by nondisclosure agreements on what it can discuss about economic development incentives it's received from Louisiana and Kansas, Boisture said.
