Boeing Canada broke ground on its 12,000 square-foot expansion at its Winnipeg manufacturing facility on Nov. 1.
The expansion includes a 7,250 square-foot freezer for storing composite manufacturing materials. This will nearly double Boeing Winnipeg’s freezer space, reduce downtime in manufacturing and decrease annual energy usage.
“This investment demonstrates our continued commitment to Boeing’s manufacturing presence in Winnipeg and environmental sustainability for our operations,” said Teri Thompson, general manager of Boeing Canada Winnipeg. “Our advanced facility and talented team play a vital role in Manitoba’s thriving aerospace industry.”
Boeing’s Winnipeg facility manufactures composite parts and assemblies for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, “including the acoustic inner barrel for the 737 MAX and the main landing gear doors for the 787 Dreamliner.”
