More Work for Stateline Area?

Boeing announced its plans Tuesday to build its new 7E7 jetliner.

The assembly plant will be located in Everette, Washington, but Hamilton Sundstrand here in Rockford manufactures parts for the Aerospace giant.

Contracts for these new parts won't be given out for another year, but it could mean good news for the Rockford plant.

This is the first all-new plane program to be approved since 1990.
