History of Boeing by Omid Kazemini
Transcript of History of Boeing by Omid Kazemini
Clairmont Egtvedt worked at Boeing from 1917- 1966. He originally joined Boeing as a draftsman and a mechanical engineer.
Pacific Aero Products Co.
In 1916, William Boeing went into business with George Conrad Westervelt and founded the Pacific Aero Products Co.
The Boeing headquarters is currently in Chicago Illinois.
William Boeing was the founder, former owner, president and former chairman of the board for Boeing.
Boeing was founded in Seattle Washington, July 15, 1916 by William Edward Boeing.
William Boeing was born on October 1, 1881 and died of a heart attack on September 28, 1956 at the age of 74, just three days before his 75th birthday.
After William Boeing retired from Boeing in 1934, he became one of America's most successful breeders of thoroughbred horses.
During World War 1 in April 1917, William Boeing changed the name of Pacific Aero Products Co. to Boeing Airplane Co. and built 50 planes for the United States Air Force.
Talk about a Big Improvement
Throughout Egtvedt's career, he was the former president, general manager and the former chairman of the board.
Bigger and Better
Under Egtvedt's direction, the Boeing Airplane Co. began building larger and more complex airplanes including the Clipper and the Flying Fortress.
That's a Rap
Clairmont Egtvedt retired from Boeing on April 24, 1966 and lived until 1975.
Edgar Gott was the vice president of Pacific Aero Products Co., which later became Boeing a year later.
Edgar Gott was the first cousin of William Boeing.
A must have
Gott was the company president between 1922-1925 and led Boeing out of their slump following World War 1.
Under Gott's guidance, the company developed its first biplane fighters and Boeing established itself as a manufacturer of military aircraft.
Gott left Boeing in 1925 to become vice president of Fokker Aircraft Corporation of America.
Gott is Gone
Boeing made planes and helicopters for the Air Force and still does today.
One of the helicopters Boeing made was the AH-64 Apache. It's the world's most advanced multi-role combat helicopter.
All around the World
Boeing has delivered more than 2,100 Apaches to the Air Force and to customers around the world.
F-15 E Strike Eagle
The F-15 E Strike Eagle is a twin engine that is the backbone for the Air Force's air superiority. Its proven design is undefeated in air-to-air combat, with more than 100 aerial combat victories.
Bigger and Faster
Its two engines provide 58,000 pounds thrust which enables the F-15 to exceed speeds of mach 2.5 (1903 mph).
Around the World
Boeing has built more than 1,600 Strike Eagles for six countries around the world.
Boeing B-9 Bomber
The Boeing B-9 Bomber was the earliest plane based on the advanced biplane construction.
Heavy but Fast
Although the B-9 Bomber had a top speed of 186 mph,it had a five person crew and carried a 2,400 pound bomb load.
Impact on Economy
Boeing estimates that they have injected $70 billion into the local economy.
About 20,000 Boeing employees now work on the 777 program and over the years, 777 has created 56,000 local jobs, generating $3.2 billion in wages (salaries, paychecks).
Providing for the state
In 10 years, Boeing's jet making has contributed an estimated $3 billion to state tax revenue. For example, everytime Boeing sells a plane, they have to pay 9.5% tax to the state of Washington which all added up to $3 billion over 10 years.
Sharing is Caring
For every dollar in sales made by Boeing's commercial Airplanes Unit, an additional $0.45 is generated in sales among other businesses across the state.
Sharing is Caring continued
For every job created by Boeing, an additional 1.8 jobs are created in other businesses.
Helping out the economy
Last year, Boeing paid out $11.5 billion in wages to employees. Also, as of December 2014, Boeing has 165,529 employees (in case you didn't know, that's a lot of money for a lot of employees).
