Boeing resumes 737 MAX production at Renton factory

Boeing [NYSE: BA] has announced it has resumed production of the 737 MAX at the Renton, Washington factory, the company said.

The 737 program began building airplanes at a low rate as it implements more than a dozen initiatives focused on enhancing workplace safety and product quality.

During the temporary suspension of production that began in January, mechanics and engineers collaborated to refine and standardize work packages in each position of the factory. New kitting processes will also ensure that employees have everything they need at their fingertips to build the airplane.

The 737 program will gradually ramp up production this year.
