Greenpoint Delivers First VIP 787-9 in Record Time

Greenpoint Technologies delivered the first VIP-configured 787-9 to an undisclosed customer, the Moses Lake, Washington-based company announced this week. The company managed the completion from concept through redelivery, including engineering and integration of the custom-built interior, with the cabin designed in collaboration with the client’s representatives. This marks the fifth executive-configured 787 completion that Greenpoint has performed.

The main cabin hosts private VIP areas and a multifunctional living space featuring woven fabrics, wood veneers, and metallic details, complemented by softer indirect lighting. These interior elements create what Greenpoint calls “a beautiful, seamlessly outfitted Boeing 787 showcasing the client’s individual style, designed to the highest caliber, and robustly engineered to meet the aircraft mission requirements.”

This interior completion was performed eight months faster than the time required to complete the first VIP Boeing version of the 787-8 Dreamliner, which Greenpoint delivered. Klaus Koester, CEO of the Boeing completion specialist, credits the company’s detailed processes, planning, and 10-year knowledge base of the composite airframe’s complex systems and structures for the expedited completion.

“This historical achievement is a testament to our team’s dedication to detail and VIP completion expertise,” Koester said. “Greenpoint is grateful for the opportunity to partner with such an amazing client, and we look forward to applying this expertise to future VIP projects.”
