Boeing Suspends Production of H-47 Chinook and V-22 Osprey Aircraft

In response to the growing cases of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Boeing is temporarily suspending production operations at its facilities in Ridley Township, Pennsylvania.

The site includes manufacturing and production facilities for military rotorcraft, including the H-47 Chinook, V-22 Osprey and MH-139A Grey Wolf.

Defense and commercial services work and engineering design activities are also performed at the site.

This action is intended to ensure the well-being of employees, their families and local communities, and will include an orderly shutdown consistent with requirements of U.S. and global defense customers.

The suspension will take effect at the close of work on Friday, April 3. The suspension of operations will last two weeks, with return to work on April 20.

During the suspension, Boeing will continue to monitor government guidance and actions on COVID-19 and associated impacts on company operations.

The company will conduct additional deep cleaning activities at buildings across the site and establish rigorous criteria for return to work.
