Thursday, October 24, 2019


Spirit AeroSystems committed to create 33,500 opportunities for American workers today as President and CEO Tom Gentile signed the White House Pledge to America’s Workers. He joined U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump to sign the pledge at an event hosted on the campus of WSU Tech.


“Spirit AeroSystems is proud to pledge our commitment to America’s workforce by investing in 33,500 opportunities to train, up-skill, and provide pathways for career advancement for our U.S. employees,” Gentile said. “The aerospace industry needs skilled workers to design and build products using advanced manufacturing technologies. We look forward to working with the administration to advance our shared goals of investing in a highly-trained workforce to build on the legacy of American ingenuity.”


Over a five year period, Spirit pledged to create 33,500 opportunities for workers by investing in initiatives such as apprenticeships, paid internships that lead toward full-time job offers, specialized on-the-job training for new technologies, and work-based learning programs offered at no cost to its employees.


Spirit collaborates with regional educational institutions in Kansas, Oklahoma and North Carolina to provide specialized technical training for its workforce. These educational partners include WSU Tech, Hutchinson Community College, Tulsa Tech, Kiamichi Tech – McAlester and Lenoir Community College.
