SALT LAKE CITY —

Gov. Gary Herbert is joining officials from Boeing Co. at a news conference to announce the aircraft maker is expanding manufacturing operations in Utah.

Boeing officials say they are opening a third factory the Salt Lake City area to fabricate a tail piece for the Boeing 787.

Boeing is taking over a factory originally built by KraftMaid Cabinetry in the Salt Lake suburb of West Jordan.

Boeing has 575 employees in Utah and says it will add 100 more.

Boeing is based in Chicago and assembles the 787 in Seattle but has had operations in Utah for 25 years. It makes flight deck parts, has a paint shop and assembles the 787's vertical tail fin at other locations near Salt Lake's airport.

In West Jordan, Boeing will make horizontal stabilizers for the aircraft's tail.
