SAN FRANCISCO, May 31 (Xinhua) -- Boeing announced on Wednesday that a new Boeing Distribution Services site is open at Panattoni Park Rzeszów Airport III in Poland.
The facility more than doubles the space for storing aircraft parts compared to the prior location and expands Boeing's presence in Poland's Aviation Valley, a unique industrial hub, Boeing said.
The new site enables advanced, customized shipping and packing processes for Boeing's partners, which will improve delivery times to customers, including airlines, original equipment manufacturers, and maintenance, repair and overhaul operations, according to Boeing.
"Our goal is to expand our business in the vibrant Podkarpacie region and Europe, creating new jobs and opportunities for industrial partnerships," said Michael Haidinger, President, Boeing Germany, Benelux, Central & Eastern Europe.
"We are focused on continuing to grow our distribution services capabilities by leveraging and expanding our global network," said William Ampofo, vice president, Parts & Distribution Services and Supply Chain at Boeing Global Services. "This further strengthens our ability to deliver the products and services our customers need, when and where they need them."
Boeing Distribution Services has operated in Poland since 2005 and supports more than 200 customers. The headquarters in Rzeszów is Boeing's second-largest distribution center in Europe, after the chemical and specialty materials facility in Hensteadt-Ulzburg, Germany.
