Why build a new factory when you have one allready?

Just have to move the new tooling into it.

There are two good reasons why the 7E7 will be built at Boeing's Paine Field plant in Everett, WA:

1. Easy access to the nearby Port of Everett to bring in completed 7E7 components from Japan.

2. Plentiful manufacturing floor space to build the 7E7 (e.g., use the space formerly used by 767 production and the space that was supposed to be the second 777 production line).

Only makes sense. Why spend the money on a new facility or expanding/improving on another one when you already have on in Seattle. My opinion was that Boeing was trying to put pressure on the state of Washington.

Never take financial advice from co-workers.

My opinion was that Boeing was trying to put pressure on the state of Washington.

Of course they were; they played the State like a fiddle and won a $3 billion dollar concession package. All they needed to do was play the "We're pulling out of Washington" scare tactic and the State came begging to them on their knees. And it doesn't hurt to have also played the unions for all their political pressure they can put on Boeing to stay put.

It is a well-known fact that Washington has not been a good state for big business, the tax burden as well as other factors (such as the horrendous traffic), have had Boeing eying a move for a long time now. But now that they got the concessions they wanted, they're as happy as can be.
