Almost one year since Spirit Aerosystems broke ground at the Global Transpark, progress on the new facility is on schedule to open by end of 2010.
The five hundred thousand square foot facility sits on 304 acres of land. It will be the anchor site for the Global Transpark, in Kinston.
Spirit will construct the center fuselage of the newest airbus 350 X-W-B. While the company promises to employ close to a thousand people once they've opened, they've already been a boost to the economy.
Spirit specializes in constructing the one of kind, airbus 350, which is a new family of mid-size wide body airlines that should roll out in 2013.
