Greenpoint secures completion contract for BBJ 787 pair

Boeing Business Jet completions specialist Greenpoint Technologies has secured a contract from an unnamed customer for the completion of a BBJ 787-8 and a 787-9.

The contract marks the first 787-9 completion project for the Kirkland, Washington-based company and its third 787-8. Greenpoint handed over the world’s first VVIP-configured -8 to its private owner in 2016.

“Our clients know the complexity of these programmes and the challenges they present,” says Bret Neely, executive vice-president of the Zodiak Aerospace subsidiary. “Our on-time delivery performance and over 315,000h of 787 engineering design and development experience assure our clients we will perform,” he adds.

Greenpoint says its VVIP interiors are designed in-house, in partnership with its clients.

Boeing records 16 BBJ 787s jets to date – 14 -8s and a pair of -9s. Of these, three units are in service and six are undergoing completion, the airframer says.
