Boeing Co. said it will move production of horizontal tails for its 787-9 Dreamliners from Seattle to Salt Lake City, Utah, and to Alenia of Italy by late 2012.

The move would not result in any job losses in the Seattle plant.

As the production moves out of the development center, other projects will start .
With the move, Salt Lake City will get more than 100 jobs.

Boeing expects the Salt Lake City center to deliver their first stabilizer in the first quarter 2013. The date for first delivery from Alenia is still being finalized, the company said.
