The newly announced Boeing Fabrication Interiors South Carolina facility will be located near the North Charleston 787 final assembly and delivery facility (shown here in artist’s rendering). Construction for the final assembly and delivery facility is on schedule, with production due to begin in July 2011.

Boeing has chosen South Carolina as the location for fabrication and assembly of airplane interior parts to supply the 787 Dreamliner final assembly and delivery site currently under construction in North Charleston, SC. The company is reviewing potential sites for the new airplane interiors facility and anticipates making a final decision by midsummer. The new facility, Boeing Fabrication Interiors South Carolina, will be located near the North Charleston final assembly and delivery site and will have as many as 150 employees. The Boeing Fabrication Interiors South Carolina team will manufacture 787 interior parts, including stow bins, closets, partitions, class dividers, floor-mounted stow bins used by flight attendants, overhead flight-crew rests, overhead flight attendant crew rests, video-control stations, and attendant modules. The new facility will serve as an extension of the existing Interiors Responsibility Center in Everett, WA.
