Boeing to Produce High-Tech AirPlane Systems in Oregon

By April 25, 2017Executive Hotline

Work on flap actuation systems for the Next Generation 737, 737 MAX and 777 is coming to Boeing Portland, though the company said it won’t add any new jobs.
Boeing said it will manufacture and assemble key parts of its “Next Generation” planes at its plant in Gresham, bringing to the U.S. work that had previously been done overseas.
The company said the move wouldn’t expand employment at the Gresham plant, which it calls Boeing Portland, where it employs more than 1,600 people. The new work, though, ensures a stable workforce even as the plant grows more productive, said Don Hendrickson, program manager on the project.
