Spirit AeroSystems is giving North Carolina firms as many building contracts as possible in building its new plant in Kinston there.
Its main contractor is Haskell Construction of Jacksonville, Fla., but Spirit has final approval over the subcontractors Haskell hires, according to an article in ENCToday.com, based in North Carolina.
About 72 percent of all contracts awarded have gone to North Carolina firms, it said.
Spirit AeroSystems’ new 500,000 square foot plant is under construction at an industrial park.
