737 MAX production restarts

The US manufacturer Boeing has confirmed this week, that despite laying off hundreds of people,  with more layoffs on the way and receiving multiple cancellations, it has resumed production of the dangerous 737 MAX jets at the company’s Renton, Washington factory. 

The firm already has a number of the grounded type in open storage that are no longer required but has restarted operations at a much lower rate as it tries enhancing workplace safety and product quality.

“We’ve been on a continuous journey to evolve our production system and make it even stronger,” said Walt Odisho, vice president and general manager of the 737 programmes. “These initiatives are the next step in creating the optimal build environment for the 737 MAX.”

“The steps we’ve taken in the factory will help drive our goal of 100 percent quality for our customers while supporting our ongoing commitment to workplace safety,” said Scott Stocker, vice president of 737 Manufacturing.
