Boeing celebrates grand opening of N. Charleston interior center

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Boeing celebrated the grand opening of the Interior Responsibility Center on Thursday.

The center will employ 140 people who will create interiors for the 787 Dreamliner.

The new center is in the Palmetto Commerce Parkway about 15 miles from the final assembly building in North Charleston.

The center will be up and running sometime in the first quarter of next year.

The new opening comes just a day after a tentative deal was worked out between Boeing and the NLRB. The deal would settle a heated government labor dispute.

If union members approve the deal then the lawsuit against Boeing would be dropped.
