Kuka Systems facility at 6300 Merrill Creek Parkway. The German robot builder is working with Boeing to automate 777 fuselage assembly.


Kuka is already installing equipment in the 40-27 777X fuselage assembly building.


 
Boeing now owns the old Intermec building at 6001 36th AV W. Skanska USA is demolishing the interior and the 7-36 will be remodeled. The south parking lot is being used by Hoffman Construction for 777X construction crews.
 
 
 
Dirt is still being moved at the 45-012 777X static test building site.



Sometimes when airplane parts are damaged an Antonov is dispatched to Paine Field with replacement parts if regular rail transport would slow the assembly line.
