SEATTLELast week Boeing announced that it has added a new production line at Tata Boeing Aerospace Limited, its joint venture in Hyderabad, India, to manufacture complex vertical fin structures for 737 MAX jets.

The expansion marks a significant milestone for the Boeing India joint venture with the Tata industrial conglomerate, Boeing said in a statement.

The vertical fin is a complex structural airplane part. Boeing said the new production line will utilize "cutting-edge robotics and automation in manufacturing," and create additional employment opportunities and enable skill development as well. Boeing employs 3,000 people in India, and more than 7,000 people work with its supply chain partners.

Boeing 737 vertical fins have been produced by the Chinese Aviation Industry Corporation of China, which was recently added to a U.S Defense department list of companies banned from receiving exports by U.S. aerospace companies.
