Boeing officially launched new engineering sites in Poland, significantly expanding the company’s engineering capabilities in-country. Engineers in Gda?sk, Rzeszów and Warsaw will focus on structural and production engineering, as well as software and systems engineering, supporting commercial, defense and services programs. The Company plans to create several hundred new jobs in Poland, which is already one of Boeing’s fastest-growing employees bases in Europe, currently employing over 1,100 people. Boeing’s main engineering site in Rzeszów performs a broad spectrum of engineering activities, including mechanical and electrical engineering as well as customer support.

“As a global company, in a global industry, we develop global talent, and we’re committed to attracting the very best people to join our team from across the world. Our engineering teams in Poland will strengthen Boeing’s efforts to innovate, compete and win by working on a variety of capabilities, including support for current and future aircraft programs,” said Howard McKenzie, Boeing’s chief engineer and vice president of Engineering, Test & Technology.

“Boeing is dedicated to building a robust and long-lasting engineering presence in Poland.

All three sites provide engineering support, solutions and designs for various Boeing commercial and defense programs. Today’s announcement is part of Boeing’s global engineering growth strategy, which aims at leveraging resources across the enterprise and at finding synergies between existing global sites. By determining the best locations for various tasks and hiring the right talent, Boeing ensures optimal performance and efficiency.
