Any reason why Boeing doesn't built any Regional Jets?

Possibly because they think the market is already saturated with manufacturers and they don't think it's worth the investment to put thier hands in the pie.

I read an article in November that was stating that Boeing and a Russian manufacturer was colaborating on a regional jet program. I don't remember a lot of the details other than they were trying to share ideas and maybe design a future aircraft family.

Sukhoi and Boeing have committed to collaborate on the RRJ (Russian Regional Jet). Right now things are very quiet and rumors are the project is not really progressing well. Personally, I'm skeptical about Sukhoi's commitment Regional Jets -- especially after their association with the farcical Alliance Aircraft Corporation.

PVD757 is correct. Boeing and a consortium of Russian manufacturers are joining forces to build and market a regional jet to be sold in Russia, and the US. Check out the Boeing website:

They have some info on it in their archives.

Not really. At the most basic level, while the number of RJ's sold have been quite impressive, the net profit generated by those sales has been relatively small. You just have to look at Bombardier's financial statements to see that!

As Boeing nut said, it isn't worth the investment for Boeing.

Back in the 80s, Boeing bought DeHavilland Canada, but they later decided to sell it off and stick to the big iron.
