Boeing Begins Construction of South Carolina Facility
The company was attracted to South Carolina to take advantage of financial incentives, as well as its non-union work force.
The new plant will manufacture the Boeing 787 model known as the Dreamliner. The manufacturing facility can fit two of the airplanes side by side, and will be buttressed by two, 75-foot office towers. Boeing has spent more than 90 percent of the project budget on South Carolina construction companies. Despite an unusually rainy winter, officials say the project is on schedule to be completed by July 2011.
