Boeing will apply for a building permit to add a 787 Dreamliner facility in South Carolina, according to Bloomberg.
The move is a procedural one as the company considers its first commercial assembly line outside of Washington state.
“This does not mean we’ve decided to locate the second line there,” said Boeing spokesman Russ Young. “It’s strictly a procedural step.”
Boeing is considering Everett, Wash., Charleston, South Carolina and other locations for a 787 assembly line.
