CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Boeing is bringing hundreds of new jobs to South Carolina.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports (https://bit.ly/1uGEq14 ) the aerospace company has leased a 100,000-square-foot building in North Charleston for a new research center that will employ as many as 400 people.

Boeing’s Research and Technology Center-South Carolina will open later this year and focus on advanced manufacturing technology and technology to make fuselages of composite materials.

The building is near another facility that makes cabin parts for the company’s 787 Dreamliner.

Last year Boeing announced it would invest another $1 billion in the state and creating 2,000 jobs over eight years. Boeing already employs about 6,700 workers in South Carolina.
