Bombardier Names Wichita Site as New US Headquarters

Aircraft maker Bombardier Inc. on Tuesday said its Wichita, Kan., facility would be the site of the company’s new U.S. headquarters.

The Wichita facility is already home to a flight service center and an expert flight test center, Bombardier said.

Wichita is also home to the newly renamed Bombardier Defense, which is a strategic expansion of the company’s existing Specialized Aircraft division, the company said. Bombardier also confirmed additional firm orders for Global 6000 jets as part of the United States Air Force Battlefield Airborne Communications Node program.

Also on Tuesday, the company said Tonya Sudduth, the former Vice President of Operations, Wichita site, was named to the newly created role of Head of U.S. Strategy.

Bombardier said it is actively recruiting to fill over 180 jobs in Wichita and almost 500 across the U.S.
