With an overall investment of more than $800 million in its Australian businesses - which in turn produce annual sales of approximately $900 million - Boeing has strategically expanded its presence to become much more than an aerospace company.
Boeing's operations are located in every Australian state and territory (with the exception of Tasmania) with a total of 27 sites and more than 3000 direct employees. A large number of Australian suppliers and Small/Medium Enterprises (SMEs) support Boeing's activities. In addition, Boeing generates approximately $400 million in export revenue for Australia through producing components for various commercial and military aircraft, software products and services, defence-related equipment and services, and specialist consulting services – further highlighting the company's contribution to the nation's economic outcomes.
Through its partnerships with Australian industry, Boeing is helping to create and sustain thousands of high-grade high value jobs in the Australian aerospace industry and wider economy. Boeing's expenditure also stimulates new capital investment in the Australian industrial base which helps companies maintain their competitive edge.
