Diehl Aerosystems has opened “On-Site-Support Service” (OSS) in Charleston, South Carolina at a recent ceremony.
The Diehl OSS is located in a newly refurbished facility covering 5,000 sq.ft./550 sq.m., includes a local commercial representative and supporting staff who will oversee the flow of Diehl parts for Boeing airplanes assembled in Charleston. The company says this local presence will enable Diehl to deliver just-in-time support to the growing demands of the Boeing production system. The facility also has the potential for expansion to support additional activities such as warehousing and kitting.
In Charleston, Diehl is providing cabin lining packages and supporting sub-structures for the 787-10 Dreamliner.
The new site joins several other facilities of Diehl’s in the U. S. – a Customer Support Center (CSC) in Sterrett, Ala.; a facility in Everett, Wash., near the Boeing factory there; and in Mobile, Ala., and Montreal, Canada, in addition to others around the world.
