BOEING TO INAUGURATE FABRICATION FACILITY IN PIERCE COUNTY

 BOEING TO INAUGURATE FABRICATION FACILITY IN PIERCE COUNTY
 The Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) said today it will inaugurate the first of its new fabrication facilities at Frederickson in Pierce County on Thursday, July 9, at 10 a.m.
 Local media are invited to cover this event and get a first-hand look at the giant milling machines which will be used to produce wing skins and stringers for the new 777 and other wide body airplanes in the Boeing family.
 Boeing executives and local officials will outline the challenges which had to be met to go from ground breaking to an operational factory measuring nearly 1 million square feet -- in little more than one year.
 Following a brief inaugural program, press and guests will be invited to tour the facility which is called Skin and Spar South. This is Boeing's newest manufacturing plant, and the first major facility to begin operations at Frederickson.
 Boeing officials will be available for interviews.
 To help us serve your needs, please let us know if you plan to attend.
