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.
Since 1990, Boeing has engaged in a number of M&A deals: 57 transactions with a value of USD 25.74 bil. (for number and value per year, see figure below).
