Boeing Starts Construction on Its First European Production Facility

September 18 2017

Boeing ceremonially broke ground at the site of its new manufacturing facility on September 12, 2017.The new 6,200-square meter Boeing Sheffield facility, due to open in late 2018, is situated alongside the University of Sheffield’s Factory 2050, part of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC).

It will manufacture actuation system components for Boeing’s Next-Generation 737, 737 MAX and 777 airplanes – enhancing production efficiency and reducing costs whilst maintaining quality.

The Sheffield facility is part of Boeing’s broader plan to grow in-house production of selective technologies and will be the company’s first production facility in Europe.

Boeing is also planning a major research and development program with the AMRC to develop new manufacturing techniques that can be applied to the Boeing Sheffield facility and then implemented across Boeing internationally.
