Boeing Global Services begins operations
Boeing has launched its third major business unit, Boeing Global Services, which has begun operating alongside commercial airplanes and defence, space and security. This new dedicated services business focuses on the needs of government, space and commercial customers worldwide.
Global Services, headquartered in the Dallas area, was formed by integrating the services capabilities of the government, space and commercial sectors into a single business.
Boeing Chairman, President and CEO Dennis Muilenburg announced the formation of Global Services in November 2016 to expand Boeing's share of a global commercial and government services market worth an estimated $2.6 trillion over the next decade.
"Aerospace services represents one of our biggest growth opportunities for the future," said Muilenburg. "Standing up Global Services will accelerate our capabilities across all Boeing services and support areas – from our traditional parts, modifications and upgrades business to strengthening our data analytics and information-based offerings. Our services expertise, the global reach of our business, and our strong customer partnerships have us well positioned to compete and win in this important sector."
Led by President and CEO Stan Deal, Global Services will offer service solutions to customers in four key capability areas: Supply chain, engineering, modifications and maintenance, digital aviation and analytics, and training and professional services.
