In 1926 Boeing founded an affiliate “Boeing Air Transport” which got a contract with the United States Postal Service, which was very profitable in disguise. At this time Boeing bought up other postal airlines and during the second world war Boeing grew up to the biggest producer of airplanes.
Today the company consists of five business units:
Commercial Airplanes; Defence, Space and Security; Engineering; Operations and Technology; Boeing shared Service Group and Boeing Capital.
