Boeing, the prominent US aerospace company, has expanded its footprint in Poland by inaugurating new engineering hubs in Warsaw, Gdańsk, and Rzeszów. These establishments are integral to Boeing’s strategic vision and will significantly contribute to its diverse portfolio encompassing commercial aircraft, defense systems, and R&D initiatives.

Boeing has announced plans to recruit several hundred additional specialists across its Polish branches. The new employment opportunities will be available in Gdańsk, Rzeszów, and Warsaw, reinforcing the company’s workforce, which currently exceeds 1,100 employees in Poland. This investment is a pivotal component of Boeing’s global engineering growth strategy, aimed at leveraging resources throughout the organization and fostering synergy among its various global locations.

The newly formed engineering teams will engage in a spectrum of projects spanning civil and defense domains, with a particular focus on structural and production engineering, as well as software and systems engineering. These endeavors will contribute to Boeing’s commercial, defense, and service programs.

During the inaugural ceremony of the new complex in Warsaw, Linda Hapgood, Vice President of Boeing Engineering in Poland and Ukraine said: “Boeing is committed to building a strong and long-term engineering presence in Poland. Opening a new engineering centre in Poland was a natural step for us since many of our customers, industrial partners, academic partners, and research partners are located here, including the esteemed Lukasiewicz – Institute of Aviation.” Hapgood also highlighted Poland’s strong talent pool and competitive market as excellent conditions for hiring tech teams.

Boeing’s engagement in Poland spans over 35 years and encompasses various operations, including engineering, along with additional offices for Boeing Defense, Space & Security in Warsaw, Boeing Digital Solutions & Analytics in Gdańsk, and Parts & Distribution Services in Rzeszów. The company collaborates closely with Polish suppliers, local universities, and research centers. Polish engineers actively contribute to avionics and communication systems’ production and the development of software aiding in aircraft payload distribution. The Boeing Distribution Services Center in Rzeszów stands as the second-largest facility of its kind in Europe.
