Based in Denver, Colorado, Boom Supersonic is building the world’s fastest supersonic airliner, Overture. HPM recently served as the Program Manager for the site selection process for Boom’s manufacturing facility called the Overture Superfactory in the United States.
In partnership with our strategic partners, Site Selection Group (SSG) and Mott MacDonald, we developed and implemented the optimal location strategy for Boom’s manufacturing operations. With our guidance, Boom landed in Greensboro, North Carolina, at Piedmont Triad International Airport, where its Overture Superfactory broke ground in 2022 and will begin production in 2024. The factory will bring more than 2,400 local jobs by 2032.
With HPM and Mott MacDonald’s experience in the aerospace industry, and SSG’s expertise in site selection and due diligence, this team was a top choice to lead Boom through the site selection process. We are proud to work with Boom as they develop their vision to make the world dramatically more accessible through supersonic flight, and lead the way to bring new and advanced manufacturing jobs to North Carolina.
A Revolution in Aviation and Aerospace Technology
Boom Supersonic is transforming air travel with Overture, the world’s fastest airliner, optimized for speed, safety, and sustainability. Serving both civil and government markets, Overture will fly at twice the speed of today’s airliners and is designed to run on 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
