CONTRACTOR NAMED FOR EXPANSION AT BOEING SPOKANE

 CONTRACTOR NAMED FOR EXPANSION AT BOEING SPOKANE
 SPOKANE, Wash., June 3 /PRewswire/ -- The Bouten Construction Co.,


of Spokane, has been selected general contractor for the previously announced $11-million expansion of the Boeing Spokane facility, Boeing Commercial Airplane Group announced today.
 Construction of the addition to the Boeing Commercial Airplane Group plant here begins later this month, with completion scheduled for mid- 1993.
 The expansion will add 108,000 square feet to the composites manufacturing facility, making it almost half again as large as it is today.
 Phil Kelly, general manager of Boeing Spokane, said the new space will permit the fabrication of various large, dish-shaped parts which are used in the interior of the Boeing family of jetliners.
 "One such part," explained Kelly, "is a drip shield, which is used in cockpits to provide protection against moisture for critical electrical components. These parts are formed by laying composite materials onto large permanent molds called mandrels. The environmental control ducts we now make are tubular parts formed on temporary plaster mandrels which are disposed of after each part is made."
 The expansion will not only provide increased production space, but it will add needed space for employee training and other support services.
 Boeing Spokane currently employs about 475 people. Kelly said the expanded plant will require approximately 100 more employees. Hiring will begin in 1993.
