Boeing restarts defence-related operations at Puget Sound facilities

17th April 2020 - 15:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing on 16 April confirmed that defence production at its Puget Sound site resumed earlier this week, with 2,500 employees returning to work after a two-week shutdown.

The company also announced that all production of its widebody commercial airliners (some of which are used by military operators) will resume from 20 April.

The return to work will be a phased process, with employees on the B-787 programme returning on the third shift of 23 April rather than 20 April.

Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said: ‘This phased approach ensures we have a reliable supply base, our personal protective equipment is readily available and we have all of the necessary safety measures in place to resume essential work for our customers.’

Social distancing and increased personal hygiene measures will remain in place at the Puget Sound facilities.
