Wichita, KS – Spirit AeroSystems to hire hundreds of workers

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Aircraft parts maker Spirit AeroSystems is planning to hire workers this year.

The Wichita Eagle reported that the hiring is expected to occur in the first quarter because production on new and existing programs is increasing.

Spokesman Ken Evans said Friday that the near-term plans call for hiring about 200 workers for Wichita and Tulsa, Okla.

Evans says the jobs are primarily factory positions.

Spirit and the Machinists union are planning a job fair Tuesday and Wednesday in Wichita. Another job fair is planned for Jan. 21 in Wichita for workers who might consider moving to the company's Tulsa facility.
