Tianjin Boeing, established in 1999, is Boeing’s first joint venture in China and is responsible for the production of high-quality civil aviation composite parts. The factory has manufactured more than 1.8 million products to date and supports all Boeing commercial aircraft models in production, including the 737 MAX, 767, 777 and 787.

Dan Park, general manager of Boeing Tianjin, said: “With the completion of the latest expansion project, Boeing Tianjin will continue its successful development and prepare for even greater achievements in the future. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Boeing Tianjin team; it is their outstanding performance and professionalism that have enabled us to achieve this milestone.”

The expanded facility provides more production space and includes a number of amenities, including upgraded offices and conference rooms, a new employee canteen, underground parking and a fitness center. The new factory also incorporates the latest environmentally friendly building concepts, including the use of solar power generation in daily operations, a wastewater and rainwater recycling system, factory-wide LED lighting and toilet water-saving facilities. Boeing Tianjin has applied for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) platinum and gold certification for its office buildings and workshops respectively.

Boeing has enjoyed a civil aviation partnership with China for more than half a century, supporting the safe and vigorous development of China’s civil aviation industry. Today, Boeing aircraft are the main model of China’s passenger and cargo aviation system. Since China received the first batch of 707 aircraft in 1973, Boeing has delivered more than 2,000 aircraft to Chinese users.

Currently, more than 10,000 Boeing aircraft flying around the world use parts and components made in China. Boeing’s operations in China directly contribute more than US$ 1.5 billion to the Chinese economy annually, including through procurement from multiple suppliers, joint venture revenue, operational activities, training, and R&D investments for the sustainable development of the civil aviation industry.
