FHI Starts the Third Production Line for the Boeing 787 “Center Wing Box” Assembly

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (FHI), the maker of Subaru automobiles, started the newly-built third production line at its Aerospace Division’s Handa plant (Handa city, Aichi prefecture, Japan) to increase production of the center wing boxes for Boeing Co.’s 787 “Dreamliner” passenger airplane.

FHI has increased its manufacturing capabilities to three lines to support the Boeing’s plan to ramp up the 787 monthly production to 10 units as well as to address the production start of its larger variant, 787-9. Just like the existing two lines, the new line covers the production process from the center wing box assembly and main landing gear bay integration to painting and system fitting The 787 Dreamliner is Boeing’s all-new midsize twinjet using carbon fiber composite materials in 50% of its airframe, with a large number of orders already placed by the world’s major airlines.

FHI is responsible for the design and manufacture of the center wing box, a vital section of the airplane connecting the wings to the fuselage made of composite materials and titanium alloys, which requires FHI’s expertise in highly-advanced design and manufacturing technologies. As honored with the “Boeing’s Supplier of the Year” award for 2011, FHI’s superior technology and quality have been highly recognized by Boeing. While maintaining and further developing its partnership with the world’s largest aerospace company, FHI will continue to strive to enhance its technologies to consolidate its presence in the global aviation industry.

GM Realigns Global Manufacturing Organization

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

General Motors announced a realignment of its manufacturing organization to optimize the company’s global manufacturing footprint and to drive greater efficiencies and cost savings.

Tim Lee will become GM vice president, Global Manufacturing, effective immediately. Lee will also retain his position as president, GM International Operations, overseeing regional markets which account for 40 percent of GM’s global sales volume and include China, Russia and South Korea. Lee will continue reporting to GM Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson.

The move underscores the reality of GM’s manufacturing footprint and regional operations around the world. GM and its partners currently build vehicles in 30 countries for more than 100 global markets. Seventy percent of GM products are built outside of the United States in accordance with the company’s longstanding philosophy of building where it sells.

Leading a portfolio that includes more than 60 plants in 15 countries gives Tim a terrific vantage point for this job, said Akerson. His extensive manufacturing experience coupled with this alignment will help deliver great, quality vehicles that keep pace with GM’s global growth. Lee will have responsibility for GM’s manufacturing operations globally, supervising the regional manufacturing leaders who will report to him, while collaborating with the leadership of the company’s regions in North America, South America and Europe. In his new role, Lee will also be responsible for global manufacturing engineering, labor relations, safety and manufacturing strategy and planning.

With Lee’s appointment, Diana Tremblay transitions to North America vice president, Manufacturing, also effective immediately. She will report to Lee. Our realignment now allows Diana to focus her considerable talents and experience exclusively on North America – our single greatest manufacturing region, said Akerson. Diana’s work toward greater North American manufacturing flexibility has helped drive GM’s recent progress of renewed plant investments and job creation.
