Could Boeing Reopen LGB To Build More 787?

Tue Apr 03, 2007 11:34 am

With 787 orders backloged for several years and demand booming, could/should Boeing reopen the LGB plant that it got from Douglas to build additional 787s to meet demand. This could make a huge selling point over the A350.

No, the property has been sold to a commercial developer already. To late for the old Douglas plant.

absolutely NO chance

Besides, Boeing could still obtain additional capacity from a single final assembly line at Everette without the drastic measure of a second line. The limiting factor for an additional production increase is the ability of the supplier base to increase production of 787 components, not Boeing's ability to perform the integration at PAE.

Great that all so-cal need is another strip mall.  banghead 

Unfortunately the real estate that the LB property occupied is probably worth twice as much as much as it would cost to build a new facility out of state

 checkmark  The 787 FAL at PAE can assemble over 200 per year. It would be nuts for Boeing to increase production beyond that.

..., or if they do build a second line, it makes sense to have it be at Everett along side the current one. There's lots of support infrastructure and overhead that would be much less expensive to expand at Everett that to reproduce at a completely separate facility.

The second issue is California is taxing itself out of jobs. Every year thousands of jobs leave California for other states and countries. About the last thing Boeing would do is move jobs into California. More likely they would go into the South in states like Alabama.

Or China, or for a real one to ponder - Japan - Boeing designs the planes, someone else builds then and B sells them under their name...........

Then there are people like me. Took a layoff and relocated to another state. Then the comapny I work for recalled me back to so cal. Turned it down because there was no way I could afford a decent sized house. That and having to pay 9% state income tax.

Just a question LMP737 or anyone living in the USA

LMP737 pays 9% CA state tax, do you pay any federal income tax?

I know here in Australia on an income of 50K I will pay about $14k in income tax which equates to about 28% of my income.

Just curious as there is a strong belief here that we here in OZ work some of the longest hours and pay some of the highest tax

By the time you figure in federal taxes, state taxes, sales taxes and all the rest, you would lose about a total of 41% here in the USA.
