Boeing: the Chinook looks at the future 3 June, 2019

The recent investment of 133 million on the H-47 Chinook assembly line, followed some major investments early in the decade. It transformed the work in Building 3-61.1 in the Philadelphia facility, where the twin rotor helicopter is produced, the lean manufacturing process having been now fully implemented.

Depending on the version, three different lines are available: the main line is, for the time being, dedicated to US Army CH-47F assembly as well as to those FMS clients which required helicopters very similar to the standard US version.
