Memo: Boeing to choose ‘handful’ of potential 777X sites this week

boeing1EVERETT — Boeing told employees the company plans to narrow its list of potential 777X sites this week, the Seattle Times reported.

According to the Times, Commercial Airplanes CEO Ray Conner sent a memo to employees stating the company had not withdrawn its offer to the Machinists union, but rather union leaders rejected the offer. Conner said Boeing was moving on in the selection process following that “disappointing outcome.”

The company said it has received proposals from 54 sites stretching across 22 states.

Washington state’s proposal includes a package of incentives including $8.7 billion in future tax benefits.

The Times reported a Boeing spokesperson declined to say whether Washington state is still being considered.
