Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) today announced it will establish technology research centers in
South Carolina and
Washington as it continues to lay the foundation for increased competitiveness and future growth.
The company will restructure its Boeing Research & Technology organization, the company's central research-and-development unit, through the establishment of research centers in
North Charleston, S.C.; and
The new centers will operate independently but cooperatively with one another and with Boeing technology centers in
Russia. The international centers conduct research to benefit the environment, aviation safety, air traffic management and other areas.
"We are reorganizing and realigning our research-and-technology operations to better meet the needs of our Commercial Airplanes and Defense, Space & Security business units, as well as our government R&D customers," said
Greg Hyslop, vice president and general manager of Boeing Research & Technology. "Our customers have a common need for new technology that can be integrated quickly and efficiently into current products and production lines, as well as enable new market-leading products and services. With these changes, we are enhancing our ability to provide effective, efficient and innovative technology solutions."
Earlier this year, Boeing announced the geographic diversification of its Information Technology organization, as well as engineering design centers within Boeing Commercial Airplanes. BR&T's realignment continues the company's strategy of pursuing future growth and competitiveness while consistently delivering on the company's promises to its customers.
