Boeing to build 787-10 exclusively in SC

Charleston Post & Courier:

Boeing will build the 787-10 Dreamliner exclusively in North Charleston, the Chicago-based aerospace giant announced Wednesday.

The 787-10 is the largest of the Dreamliner family and the announcement of its construction at the North Charleston site has been expected for months.

Design of the 787-10 is underway in Everett, with final assembly of the first 787-10 scheduled to begin in South Carolina in 2017.

A statement from Boeing says they are happy with their success and growth in the Palmetto State.
