EBACE 2011: Greenpoint Selects Facility for Aeroloft Completion

 - May 17, 2011, 6:10 AM

Boeing Business Jet completion center Greenpoint Technologies (Stand 651) has selected Boeing’s Global Transport & Executive Systems (GTES) facility in Wichita, Kansas, to install its new 747-8 Aeroloft interior.

Kirkland, Washington-based Greenpoint and GTES have partnered for 10 years in supporting modifications of head-of-state aircraft interiors. The Aeroloft interior, now in production phase, is accessed by a spiral staircase and provides eight private sleeping berths located between doors four and five above the main deck.

GTES is a Boeing commercial derivative business headquartered in Wichita,  with domestic operations in Oklahoma City and the Puget Sound area in the state of Washington.

“GTES has a long history of providing modification support to Boeing’s commercial platforms, including 747 VIP modifications, and we hope this is the first of many opportunities to support Greenpoint,” said Steve Wade, GTES director.
