Boeing Opportunities Flying in West Jordan

Nov 06, 2015 12:54PM ● Published by Bryan Scott

By Margaret Spencer

West Jordan - Less than two years ago, Boeing bought an old kitchen cabinetry warehouse and transformed it into a new production center, opening 100 new jobs in West Jordan. Recently they have been working hard on their latest project. On Sept. 25, Boeing celebrated the completion of one of their expansion projects. 

“This is an exciting time for Boeing and our Salt Lake team,” the Boeing Salt Lake General Manager Larry Coughlin said. “Our recent progress sets the stage for Boeing Salt Lake to become a major composites manufacturing center.’’ 

They build components for a horizontal stabilizer at the West Jordan location and then ship them 22 miles to have them assembled at the Salt Lake Boeing Facility near the airport. The horizontal stabilizer, a fixed-wing section on the tail that helps keep the plane level, is a crucial part in keeping the plane stable in the air. 

In the past year, the West Jordan Boeing team has incorporated new safety measures to make jobs safer for employees, built and delivered the first 737 max flight deck structure, expanded the Boeing presence in the community through STEM and academia outreach and partnered with the Industry and Government Office of Education department to launch the Utah Aerospace Pathways education pilot. 

Boeing received a commandment from the Utah lieutenant governor, Spencer Cox, for their commitment to business growth and contribution to the state’s aerospace industry. Boeing Salt Lake has been building parts for over 28 years, has three locations and has provided more than 750 local jobs.
