A North Charleston Boeing facility that will fabricate interiors for the 787 Dreamliners is celebrating its grand opening Thursday. The Interior Responsibility Center, or IRC, will create the interiors for the 787 jetliner aircraft that are made in South Carolina. The new center is located in the Palmetto Commerce Parkway–about 15 miles from the 787 Dreamliner Final Assembly Facility in North Charleston.
Boeing continues to build and manufacture the 787s while battling a lawsuit filed earlier this year from the National Labor Relations Board. The suit claimed Boeing violated federal law by expanding its plant in right-to-work South Carolina, taking work away from Boeing’s home of Washington State which is unionized.
The IRC grand opening will take place at 10 a.m.
