Boeing Fabrication: Salt Lake
Boeing Salt Lake employs more than 750 employees at three facilities in Salt Lake County, Utah. The team’s manufacturing capabilities include fabrication, assembly and integration of metal and composite airplane components for all commercial airplane models.
In 2012, Boeing Salt Lake expanded its team and its facilities growing to over 1.2 million square feet of manufacturing floor space. The most recent additions include a high tech paint facility, a leased building in Salt Lake City, and an 850,000 square foot composite fabrication building in West Jordan.
Boeing Salt Lake’s team maintains compliance with the latest quality, safety and occupational health systems. It has a certified system in place to protect the environment, and holds a repair station license with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration for limited airframe repair.
In 1987, Boeing Salt Lake started out as McDonnell Douglas Salt Lake City. Employees manufactured floor beams and floor assemblies for MD80s, and later fuselages. The facility was part of the Tulsa, Okla., division of McDonnell Douglas until transitioning to Boeing in 1997 when the two companies merged. In 2003, the Salt Lake site became part of Boeing Fabrication.
