Local manufacturers unaffected by Boeing move

While Boeing’s announcement that the company will close its Wichita plant in 2013 is bad news for many, there will be no direct affect on local manufacturers.

Neither Marion Die & Fixture nor Marion Manufacturing makes parts for the aircraft company, employees at both companies said Friday.

The Boeing Company announced Jan. 4 that it will close its Wichita facility by 2013. The plant employs more than 2,000 people.
