Spirit AeroSystems' massive plant near Kinston remains on track to open in April.
Company officials on Wednesday held a briefing and tour of the facility under construction, the Kinston Free Press reported. The 500,000- square-foot plant is expected to begin production next spring of fuselages for Airbus planes.
The plant, about 80 miles southeast of Raleigh, eventually will employ more than 1,000.
Spirit is the first major tenant of the N.C. Global TransPark. State officials offered a rich package of financial incentives to lure the Kansas company with the hopes it would attract other industry. That includes a $100 million grant from the Golden LEAF Foundation, the biggest in the foundation's history.
