US aerospace giant Boeing has opened new engineering sites in the Polish capital of Warsaw, in Gdańsk and in Rzeszów.

The sites are intended to support the company’s strategic focus and will see work across its commercial aircraft portfolio, defence systems and R&D projects.

Boeing has said it plans to create several hundred new jobs at the sites, adding to the 1,100 employees it already has in Poland. Roles will focus on structural and production engineering, software and systems engineering, commercial support and defence and services programs.

The base in Rzeszów is Boeing’s main engineering site in Poland and houses a wide range of engineering activities, as well as some customer support. The Gdańsk site is focussed on systems and avionics engineering and the site in Warsaw is specialised in production engineering and materials testing.

Linda Hapgood, vice president of Boeing Engineering in Poland and Ukraine, said: “Boeing is committed to building a strong and long-term engineering presence in Poland. Opening a new engineering centre in Poland was a natural step for us since many of our customers, industrial partners, academic partners, and research partners are located here, including the esteemed Lukasiewicz – Institute of Aviation. Most significantly, we found the necessary skills required for our engineering projects here.”

Boeing has operated in Poland for 35 years. In addition to engineering operations, it has offices for Boeing Defense, Space & Security in Warsaw; Boeing Digital Solutions & Analytics in Gdańsk; and Parts & Distribution Services in Rzeszów.
