Boeing announced that Charleston will be the final location for the 787 aircraft assembly plant, more specifically, North Charleston. This is great news for our local economy here in Charleston, as 3800 jobs are expected to be filled over the next seven years, and Boeing is to invest more than $750 million. This will also spur growth in real estate for the area, as many employees and future employees will be relocating here.
The Boeing Co. will build the new line at its Charleston International Airport property instead of the other proposed location in Everett, Washington. This is big, as the unemployment rate is almost at an all-time high, and the local area will benefit from this massive company.
We've already been speaking with Boeing employees awaiting the potential move, and now the news is final. If you are a Boeing employee, or have friends that are- we would be grateful to help them.
