Myrtle Beach Rotarians had a fun and exciting day as they joined leaders from the Waccamaw region to tour Boeing South Carolina.
The North Charleston site currently serves as one of two final assembly and delivery points for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Boeing South Carolina, a 57,920-square-foot facility, opened in 2011, and delivers South Carolina-built 787’s to customers from around the world. It is one of South Carolina’s largest employers.
Mark Ousley, immediate past president of the Rotary Club of Myrtle Beach, is credited with making the trip possible. “This is a rare opportunity,” said current president, Don Hovis. “This is only the second time since the opening of the North Charleston facility, that a group such as ours has been allowed to tour Boeing SC. Tours such as this are usually limited to individuals/corporations purchasing planes and South Carolina students,” he said.
