Boeing In Europe

By the Numbers

Boeing directly employs nearly 8,000 talented people across Europe. Over 2,000 people in Germany, Poland, Sweden and The Netherlands advance Boeing’s digital aviation technologies.

The company has delivered 5,400 commercial aircraft to more than 130 European customers in the last 60 years and Boeing’s advanced defence platforms are in service with 25 European armed forces. In addition, Boeing provides unparalleled aerospace services to more than 350 European customers.

Boeing Europe is strengthening its presence by investing in new facilities and leading-edge research as well as through advancing educational, environmental and social programmes that support the European Union’s long-term goals. In 2018, Boeing opened its first production facility in Europe in Sheffield (UK), to manufacture high-tech components for Boeing’s Next-Generation 737, 737 MAX and 767 aircraft.

Over the last 3 years, Boeing sourced several billion euros from hundreds of European suppliers. We are also very proud of an investment of more than €4 million with Newton Europe into a joint pan-European STEM project.
