The first spin-off jobs from Spirit AeroSystems are coming to the Global TransPark.
DB Schenker has signed a 5-year lease for one half of a warehouse at GTP and expects to eventually fill as many as 40 full-time jobs.
The company, headquartered in New York, is a third-party logistics supplier for Spirit. The company will occupy space in the building known as GTP 2. Schenker does similar work for Spirit at its Wichita site.
Spirit held its grand opening for a 500,000 square foot manufacturing facility on July 1 and has begun manufacture of fuselage sections and wing spars for the Airbus A350XWB airliner.
