Happy 94th Birthday, Boeing

I learned it this morning on Twitter from @BoeingCorporate.  William Boeing incorporated his company on July 15, 1916.

We like Boeing.  So does Ohio.

Besides being the Port Authority's largest customer, we like the impact Boeing has on Ohio.


The 10-digit dollar figure above is the actual amount Boeing spent in Ohio in 2009 with over 500 vendors.

That's over 1% of Ohio's Gross Domestic Product and it didn't go down with the Great Recession, either.

One company buying 1% of a state the size of Ohio's GDP?  Impressive.

Thanks, Boeing.

All Ohioans should do a toast to Boeing's birthday with hopes for more to come too.  The more the merrier.

  1. I'll toast Boeing just after 5:00 this evening, Rick. But only because you told me to.
