KUKA Aerospace designed the Fuselage Automated Upright Build technology for Boeing.

KUKA Aerospace, a developer of automated manufacturing systems for aircraft manufacturing and assembly, is locating its first U.S. facility outside of Michigan in Everett, WA. The 29,000-ft² center will provide a service and maintenance hub close to KUKA Aerospace customers on the West Coast and help support current expansion. It is expected that about 75 employees will work out of the facility when it is fully operational. KUKA Aerospace is based in Sterling Heights, MI, with manufacturing and assembly solutions including automated systems, from static and mobile robotic drilling and fastening cells to entire assembly lines.
