Boeing studying in-house printing operations, May outsource
Press release from the issuing company
July 14, 2003 -- The Wichita Business Journal reported last week that Boeing Co. is studying whether to keep its printing and scanning operations in-house or outsource to another company. The estimated volume was not provided in the report.
Boeing Wichita spokesman Dick Ziegler told The Journal that the company had many options including spinning off the unit as a separate business. He says the study is part of the company's on-going efforts to look at its costs and efficiency.
The study includes all of the company's print, plot and scan centers, including its center at Boeing Wichita and will be completed in the next 60 days or so.
