Boeing Co. will cut a ribbon to mark the completion of its 787 aircraft assembly plant at Charleston International Airport at ceremony Friday morning.
The 10 a.m. event is listed on Gov. Nikki Haley’s schedule for this week. Other speakers include North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey and local Boeing executives Jack Jones and Marco Cavazzoni.
Also scheduled to attend is Ray Conner, vice president and general manager of supply chain management and operations for Boeing Commercial Airplanes in Everett, Wash.
The ribbon-cutting event is by invitation only.
“It’s still a construction site, and we have to limit the number of people we have on site,” said Boeing spokeswoman Candy Eslinger.
The company plans to begin assembling its first 787 Dreamliner passenger jet at the North Charleston factory by next month. The line will require up 3,800 workers.
