Moving mountains in a mountain community
Boeing subsidiary Insitu grows in the Columbia River Gorge
March 23, 2015 in Our Commitment
The Columbia River Gorge in the Pacific Northwest offers breathtaking views; and for a company that manufactures unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), it also offers a backdrop for growth and opportunity. Boeing subsidiary Insitu recently cemented its commitment to the River Gorge community by opening a 127,000 square foot production facility and office space in Bingen, Wash. The technology company has come a long way from its humble beginnings in a small garage in Bigen over 20 years ago. "We've grown this company into an information-based company," said Ryan Hartman, Insitu President and CEO. Hartman added, "It is a prosperous business in a town that is growing and economically healthy."
Nearly 800 employees build and support Insitu's UAS line of ScanEagles, Integrators and ground stations. Boeing's cameras captured the first images inside of Insitu's new production facility, Eagle Point. Watch the video for a peek inside and learn more about where high-tech meets mountain height.
