Boeing to expand Montana plant
Sep 18, 2013 (AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION via COMTEX) --
US airframer Boeing (NYSE: BA) said it will expand its manufacturing site in Helena Montana in the USA by nearly 50% to support demand for Boeing commercial airplanes and new work for the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner.
Boeing chairman, president and CEO Jim McNerney, joined by Senator Max Baucus and Governor Steve Bullock, made the announcement this week at the Montana Jobs Summit in Butte.
According to Boeing, the nearly USD 35m expansion will add more than 55,000 square feet of manufacturing space, bringing the Boeing Helena facility to 167,099 square feet.
Construction will begin this fall on the south side of the existing facility, with estimated completion by the fourth quarter of 2014. Boeing expects the expansion and increased work to add 20-25 people to the 144-person workforce.
Boeing Helena manufactures complex parts for the 737, 747, 767 and 787 models from hard metals like titanium.
