Boeing 777X Aircraft will be Designed Outside Seattle

Boeing Co. is not going to work on its biggest plane project in Washington. Boeing Co. has decided to do the most design work for its new 777X aircraft outside Seattle. But it is not yet known that how much of 777X design work will be taken outside Washington. Boeing has production facilities in South Carolina, Texas, Washington and other places.

Boeing states, "It has been decided that much of the detailed design will be carried out by Boeing engineering teams in Charleston (South Carolina), Huntsville (Alabama), Long Beach (California), Philadelphia and St. Louis. However, at this time, no decisions have been made about 777X design or build in Puget Sound," in an internal memo sent to employees on Wednesday, according to Reuters . Some design work of Boeing 777X aircraft will also be done in its Moscow Design Center.

Boeing's current aircraft 777 was made in its giant factory in Everett, Washington. Boeing also has production facilities at other places in the Puget Sound region including Seattle and Renton. But this time Boeing has decided to do 777X aircraft design and assembly work outside Puget Sound region. This decision can be a result of Boeing's ongoing fight against the engineers' union in Seattle called SPEEA. Boeing has already taken many engineering jobs outside Washington in current year.

Washington GovernorJay Inslee, is not happy with this decision. The Governor has also offered a package of tax incentives and other facilities to stop Boeing going outside of Washington. He is disappointed by this decision and he will "compete boldly and aggressively to win this work," for Puget Sound region.
