Boeing Adds 150 Jobs with Interiors Production Facility in North Charleston, South Carolina
"This decision is another significant step toward creating a solid aerospace presence for future generations to come in South Carolina," said Ray Conner, vice president and general manager of Supply Chain Management and Operations for Boeing. "The selected location for our new interiors facility will provide us with the continued flexibility we need to leverage our production capability and meet the needs of our 787 customers."
The new facility will be located 10 miles from Boeing's 787 final assembly and delivery site in North Charleston. The proximity of the two plants will make the assembly and delivery of aircraft more efficient.
Boeing will produce stowbins, closets, partitions, class dividers, floor-mounted stowbins, video control stations, and attendant modules at its new plant, to be called the Interiors Responsibility Center. Construction will begin in the fourth quarter of this year.
