New distribution centre in Poland

The awards come soon after Boeing opened a new distribution services site at Panattoni Park Rzeszów Airport III in Poland.

The expansion substantially increases the storage space for aircraft parts and reinforces Boeing's presence in Poland's ‘Aviation Valley’ to improve stock availability for aviation procurement operations.

Boeing's Parts & Distribution Services portfolio encompasses an extensive range of offerings, including over 15 million parts, services, and tailored solutions that streamline production and aftermarket processes worldwide. The company says they remain committed to diversifying its services and investments, with regional distribution centres being an important part of their strategy to enhance customer service.

Boeing says the facility lets customers leverage advanced shipping and packing processes, and that it cuts delivery times for commercial and military customers. This includes airlines, original equipment manufacturers, as well as maintenance, repair, and overhaul operations.

Dr. Michael Haidinger, President of Boeing Germany, Benelux, Central & Eastern Europe, said: "Our goal is to expand our business in the vibrant Podkarpacie region and Europe, creating new jobs and opportunities for industrial partnerships."
