Boeing Research and Development Center in Charleston, SC
A Boeing Research and Development center has opened in Charleston, South Carolina. The new 100,000 square-foot facility has created 300-400 jobs and focuses primarily on advancing manufacturing technology and composite fuselage development.
Greg Hyslop, vice president and general manager of Boeing Research and Technology, says the project is reorganizing and realigning the research and technology operations to better meet the needs of commercial airplanes and defense, space and security business units, as well as government R&D customers.
The South Carolina facility is the 11th Boeing R&D facility established. Boeing currently already employ over 8,000 people in South Carolina and over 80,000 in Washington state.
The North Charleston factory is capable of producing all three variants of Boeing’s newest and biggest Dreamliner widebody aircraft.
In addition to South Carolina, Boeing has also opened new R&D centers in Seattle, Alabama, Missouri and California.
