Spirit AeroSystems reported strong growth in 2017 and expects similar results in 2018, according to an earnings report released Friday.
The city’s largest employer said revenue was up about 3 percent in 2017, to $7 billion. Revenue in 2018 is forecast to grow slightly.
Operating income dropped about 20 percent in 2017 to $569 million, due mostly to a new contract with Boeing, its biggest customer, the company said. But Spirit is forecasting income growth in 2018.
