The Boeing Co. resumed operations Sunday at its assembly plant in North Charleston, South Carolina after the facility was shut down for about five days.
The plant ceased operations last Tuesday so that workers and their families could evacuate the area ahead of the storm initially known as Hurricane Florence.
Last Monday, state officials issued a mandatory evacuation order for residents of South Carolina’s coastal counties. The order was lifted Saturday.
Boeing South Carolina resumed “full operations beginning third shift Sunday night,” Boeing spokeswoman Libba Holland said in an email.
Boeing South Carolina is home to the company’s second 787 Dreamliner final assembly and delivery facility.
All three versions of the plane are built in South Carolina. The 787-8 and 787-9 also are assembled in Everett. But the newest and longest member of the family, the 787-10, is built only in North Charleston at a factory adjacent to the Charleston airport. It is Boeing’s only commercial jetliner factory outside Washington.
