EVERETT — B/E Aerospace finished moving its Marysville operations to its plant at Paine Field earlier this month.
The move completes the company’s plans to consolidate operations in Snohomish County in one location, B/E Aerospace spokesman Ed Kinnier said.
The Florida-based company moved operations at two Everett locations into the plant after it opened in June 2013.
The company built the new plant “specifically to support the growth of our businesses in the area,” Kinnier said. “The facilities we occupied before the build of the Paine Field site would not accommodate our growth.”
B/E delayed moving the Marysville operation “until the other two business units had moved in and had completed their initial production ramp up,” Kinnier said.
Approximately 250 people worked for B/E in Marysville, according to people familiar with the operation.
However, Kinnier said the company does not say how many people work at a specific site.
The company has been hiring in Snohomish County.? ?B/E Aerospace’s local workforce “has been growing in line with the production ramp up at the site,” he said.
Workers at the site make lavatories and other components used on commercial aircraft interiors.
