Our hats are off to Boeing, with a special shout out to all of the company’s hard working employees and their families here in the Lowcountry!  The Seattle-based aerospace giant just announced that on April 27, the North Charleston plant will finally roll out its first completed aircraft, the widely-anticipated 787 Dreamliner .  The Dreamliner is a large capacity airliner featuring new lighter weight carbon-reinforced plastic composite materials instead of traditional aluminum parts significantly boosting fuel-efficiency. The Dreamliner is set for its inaugural flight sometime in June.

 We are thrilled to be a small part of Boeing’s successful move to the Charleston area. In 2009, shortly after the company announced
