Final assembly of the Boeing 787-10, the newest and longest member of the Dreamliner family of airplanes, will take place exclusively in North Charleston, S.C., the manufacturer announced today.
Senior Aerospace AMT of Columbia, South Carolina, manufacturer of structural parts for commercial aircraft OEMs, announced on the eve of the Farnborough Airshow establishing a satellite operation in the Charleston, South Carolina area to serve Boeing South Carolina, which manufactures portions of the 787 Dreamliner.
Boeing’s Charleston, South Carolina 787 factory has experienced a higher number of behind-schedule jobs involving the airplane’s mid-body section than originally anticipated, requiring it to apply “additional resources” to help flow times progress to a satisfactory level, Boeing CFO Greg Smith acknowledged during a conference call the company held Wednesday to discuss its fourth-quarter earnings.
Boeing has left little doubt that it harbors bigger plans for its new plant in Charleston, South Carolina, where by the end of this year it expects to deliver three Dreamliners a month.
Boeing will reveal the location of its planned second final assembly line for the 787 “over the next couple of weeks,” CEO James McNerney said today. Speaking during the company’s third-quarter earnings call, McNerney effectively narrowed the competition to Everett and Charleston, S.C., while downplaying the risk and redundancy of locating two lines that build the same product on opposite sides of the country.
