Everett Mayor Says Boeing Wing Plant a “Wealth of Opportunity” For Everett, WA

February 18, 2014


Boeing 777x Wing Center

As expected, the Boeing company announced today that it will build the composite wings for the 777x at the Everett plant. Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson was among the dignitaries speaking at a ceremony at the Everett plant to mark the announcement. Here’s the official Boeing press release:

Boeing (NYSE: BA) today announced the selection of its Everett, Wash., site as the location for a new composite wing center for the 777X program. Boeing evaluated criteria that were designed to find the wing fabrication location that would best support the 777X business plan. The new composite wing center will be located north of the Everett factory and will sustain thousands of Puget Sound area jobs for years to come.

“Locating the new composite wing center in Everett is a win for all of our teammates and partners,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President & CEO Ray Conner. “This will put our workforce on the cutting edge of composite technology and allow us to build on the infrastructure and logistics system we have in Everett. This decision will strengthen the company’s competitiveness and help it grow for the long term.”

Boeing selected the Everett site for 777X final assembly following the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers (IAM) District 751 approval of an eight-year contract extension earlier this year. As part of the contract extension, the company agreed to fabricate the parts for, and assemble, the 777X composite wings in the Puget Sound region. After studying several options, the company determined that the Everett site will meet its business needs for fabrication and assembly.

“This marks the first step in a bricks and mortar commitment by Boeing to build a facility that will be home to the jobs and technology of tomorrow – not in a foreign country or a distant state, but right here in the Pacific Northwest,” said IAM President Tom Buffenbarger.

The new facility will support fabrication of the 777X composite wings and will be approximately 1 million square feet. Construction on the new facility is scheduled to begin later this year.

Assembly of the composite wings will also take place at the company’s Everett site, with the exact location to be determined in the months ahead.

“Today we gain certainty that Washington will remain the global leader in aerospace for decades to come,” said Washington Governor Jay Inslee. “Thanks to this tremendous investment by Boeing, we know that thousands of talented Washington workers will soon be fabricating the most technologically advanced carbon fiber structure ever developed and the world’s next great commercial airplane, the 777X. The work at this plant also launches Washington into the forefront of advanced composites manufacturing – an industry with exciting growth potential beyond aerospace.”

“Today’s announcement signals the beginning of a new era of aerospace for Everett and Washington state,” said Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson. “The 777X and composite wing technology represent a wealth of opportunity – not just for Boeing and its workers – but also for our entire community. With our history and experienced workforce, Everett has earned its place at the forefront of this next phase of commercial aviation.”

“Thank you to everyone who participated in this process, especially our IAM teammates and elected officials. Together we will carry forward our tradition of aerospace excellence in Washington,” added Conner.

The 777X builds on today’s passenger-preferred, market-leading 777 and offers more market coverage and revenue capability than the competition. First delivery is targeted for 2020.

In a news conference that just concluded, Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson was joined by the mayors of Kent and Renton, Snohomish County Executive John Lovick, Former Snohomish County Executive Bob Drewel and Port of Everett Commissioner Troy McClelland in urging machinists members to vote yes on Friday to the revised contract proposal by Boeing. The group said they had a meeting with Boeing prior to the press conference and were told that if the vote on Friday is no, then the 777x wing work will definitely not be done in Puget Sound. Bob Drewel stated, “I cannot imagine that if the wing work is done elsewhere than the body won’t also be built in that location.” The leaders all urged machinists to vote yes saying this is about the future of the aerospace economy in not just Everett but the entire Puget Sound Region. You can look at this story for links from both the machinists local and international as well as the Boeing Company on their various positions.

Mayors of Everett, Renton, Kent to Speak on 777x Vote Monday

December 27, 2013

Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson, Snohomish County Executive John Lovick, Renton Mayor Denis Law, Kent Mayor Suzette Cooke and other community leaders are holding a joint press event at Everett City Hall on Monday, Dec. 30, as they discuss the significance of the 777X to Everett and Washington state ahead of the Jan. 3 Machinists union vote.

According to a press release today…”the group will talk about the importance of Boeing to their communities and the state, as the Machinists prepare to vote on a new contract proposal next Friday and as Boeing prepares to announce the 777X site early next year.” It appears to be a press event and not open to the general public.

Also today, R. Thomas Buffenbarger, International President of the IAM said in a message on their website that time is running out for the 777x to be built in Everett…

“I am duty-bound to inform the membership this vote will be the final vote on this proposed contract. Since the previous vote taken on November 13, 2013, the Boeing Company sought Requests for Proposals (RFPs) from several other potential sites to locate the 777X program. Some may believe this is a “fake” play by the Company. Your union, based upon information that indicates otherwise, must take the threat seriously. Given the legalities of the RFP process and the fact that several states have tendered serious offers and incentive packages to the Company, the timeline for the Puget Sound area is expiring.”

You can read his entire message here.

The IAM has posted the IAM and Boeing summaries of the contract proposal here.

Local iam751 has posted an extensive newsletter regarding the 777x contract vote and is urging its members locally to vote no. You can see that newsletter here.
