  • ANALYSIS: Renton factory evolves to meet 737 production rate

    News | 17 Jun 2015 07:31 | Stephen Trimble

    Boeing’s factory complex on the south shore of Lake Washington has seen busy times before. In July 1945 alone, the Renton workforce built 160 B-29 bombers, representing about 5.4 million kg (11.9 million lb) of combined empty weight. Seventy years later, an expanded factory with 112 square metres (1.2 million square feet) under roof is again testing the limits of aerospace productivity at a single site.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Renton-factory-evolves-to-meet-737-production-rate-412908/
