Boeing is set to announce this week that it will consolidate all 787 Dreamliner production in North Charleston, S.C., stripping Everett of its most significant jet assembly line, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday evening.
Rep. Rick Larsen, D-Everett, issued a statement saying that "Boeing's decision to pull its 787 production out of Washington state is shortsighted and misplaced."
The news will be a tremendous blow to Boeing's Everett workforce.
It threatens to leave the largest building by volume in the world — housing Everett's widebody jet final assembly lines — almost an empty shell.
