Boeing to bring another plant to SC and hire 150

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Boeing is bringing another plant to South Carolina.

The aircraft maker announced Monday it will create about 150 jobs by building a plant to assemble the interiors for its new 787 jetliner.

The company says it hasn't decided an exact location for the new plant, but it wants the inside of the planes made within 20 minutes of the jetliner assembly line being built in North Charleston and scheduled to open in July 2011.

Boeing officials wouldn't say how much the company is investing in the new plant.

The company picked South Carolina for a second site to build its latest jetliner, expanding from its longtime Washington manufacturing base to take advantage of incentives and a nonunion work force.
