Boeing opens 777X composite wing center

Boeing has formally opened its new 777X Composite Wing Center (CWC) in Everett, Wash.
The facility, located on the north side of the main final assembly building, will manufacture the world’s largest composite wings for the 777X, the company’s newest commercial jetliner, and sustain thousands of Puget Sound area jobs.
Boeing has invested more than $1 billion in the Everett site for construction and outfitting of the new building.
“This event is bigger than celebrating the opening of a magnificent new building,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. “It’s about our employees, and shared success with our partners around the region and in Olympia in keeping the Puget Sound at the forefront of aerospace leadership for decades to come.”
