Boeing expanding Winnipeg composite manufacturing facility

November 13, 2023 | Featured, News

November 7, 2023 – Boeing broke ground on a 12,000 square feet expansion to their Winnipeg plant with Bockstael Construction to meet growing demand for airplane components.

The expansion includes a 7,250 square-foot freezer for storing composite manufacturing materials, nearly doubling the site’s freezer capacity and reducing manufacturing downtime due to built-in 100% operational redundancy. The freezer will lower annual energy usage by more than 20% and utilizes a modern CO2-based refrigeration system that produces less emissions. The LEED silver-certified design also reduces the expansion’s carbon footprint compared to traditional construction.
