Pomona : Hughes to Move Missile Jobs

September 16, 1993

Hughes Aircraft Co.'s recent decision to keep its corporate headquarters in Los Angeles because of pro-business signals by state political leaders will have no effect on its missile division, which is pulling out of Pomona.

A Hughes spokesman said this week that Hughes Missile Systems Co., a division of Hughes Aircraft, will still move thousands of manufacturing jobs from California to its manufacturing hub in Tucson.

After years of layoffs, Hughes Missile Systems announced in April that it would phase out its California production and engineering operations, including its Pomona plant, by the end of 1994. About 3,500 employees from the Pomona and Rancho Cucamonga plants were affected by that decision. Some of those employees will be transferred to Tucson, but most face layoff notices.
