Boeing ramps up 737 production to 38 airplanes per month

RENTON, Wash., 31 Jan. 2013. Boeing (NYSE:BA) workers are now assembling Next-Generation 737 at a rate of 38 airplanes per month in its Renton, Wash., facility.

Boeing has grown production of the 737 by more than 20 percent, from 31.5 to 38 airplanes a month, over the past two years.

Boeing’s executive leadership anticipates another increase in 2014, to a rate of 42 airplanes a month.

"We have more hard work ahead of us, but we are well on our way to another successful production rate increase," says Beverly Wyse, vice president and general manager of the 737 program.

Employee teams have been instrumental in reducing 737 production flow by developing and implementing innovative efficiency improvements, says a spokesperson.

The first Next-Generation 737 built at the new rate is scheduled to be delivered in the second quarter of this year.
