Boeing Co. plans to close its modeling and simulation center in Suffolk in November.
"The Daily Press" reports that the company announced the decision Tuesday.
Boeing spokeswoman Deborah VanNierop told the newspaper that the center's major customer was the Joint Forces Command in Hampton Roads.
But VanNierop said the center's closure isn't necessarily related to the Department of Defense's plan to close the command. She said Boeing is trying to cut costs.
The center opened in October 2008 and had seven employees as of Tuesday.
