Boeing has established the “Boeing Japan Research Center” in Nagoya, Japan, as its research and development base in the country.

In Japan, research and development work is focused on the latest digital tools, composite materials, Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), hydrogen technology integration projects, and robotics for incorporation into aircraft design and manufacturing. Some of the research is conducted in collaboration with Nagoya University and Kyushu University.

The opening ceremony was attended by Hideaki Ohmura, Governor of Aichi Prefecture; Takashi Kawamura, Mayor of Nagoya; Todd Citron, Boeing’s Chief Technology Officer; Patti Chanchien, Vice President and General Manager of Research & Technology (BR&T); and Will Shaffer, President of Boeing Japan.
