Thursday, December 1, 2011
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Boeing has dedicated its South Carolina factory that will make interior parts for its new 787 jetliners that are being assembled nearby.
The 300,000-square-foot Interiors Responsibility Center will make such things as stowing bins, closets, partitions, overhead rests and video control stations. It was officially opened on Thursday.
The first group of interior components will be delivered to the assembly plant last year.
The $750 million aircraft assembly plant opened earlier this year, the largest single industrial investment in state history.
