SALINA, Kan. (AP) Hawker Beechcraft is selling off surplus assets from its Salina division, which the airplane maker is closing.
The Wichita-based company announced in 2009 that it would close the Salina operation. The company, one of the nation’s leading business jet manufacturers, said it was moving the jobs to Wichita, where Hawker Beechcraft is headquartered.
The company’s lease of 484,000 square feet in Salina expires February 2012. Employees at the Salina facility build wings and other parts.
The Salina Journal reports that the asset sale is planned for Dec. 20 and will include machine tools, pickup trucks, and other items. The on-site auction includes online bidding.
