BoeingAn article recently published in the Seattle Times is blaming Boeing production in South Carolina for problems experienced on the Boeing assembly line in the Puget Sound.

According to an article released Monday night, sections of Boeing 787 Dreamliners coming from the North Charleston facility have been arriving in Washington state incomplete, and with what the article calls "poorly done work."

The Seattle Times piece says the quality of work coming out of Boeing South Carolina (BSC) is only getting worse. The article goes on to say the "poor work" out of North Charleston might be putting the company behind on its production goal of ten Dreamliners per month.

The author of the piece does not name his sources at Boeing in Washington state and South Carolina. He says their names cannot be revealed because they spoke without company permission.

BSC released a statement Tuesday saying the company is making its rate commitments and "has a solid plan to continue to implement improvements as we go forward."

The Times article points to so-called "inexperienced workers" in North Charleston for the problems with production, along with a lack of proper training materials.
