BAINBRIDGE – Earlier this month, Boeing, a leading aircraft manufacturer, debuted their newest airplane, the 787 Dreamliner, and one Chenango County company will be playing a role in building it.
Upturn Industries, a Bainbridge-based business, will be making pieces for the plane’s oxygen system. Upturn Industries will build the part for their client Carleton Technologies, who will build the oxygen system.
Plant Manager Mike Horoszewski seemed surprised at the number of calls he received as a result of the announcement. He explained that Upturn has made a number of parts through Carleton Technologies that were used on other Boeing aircrafts. The part they will be making for the 787 is almost the same part.
