The Boeing Co. says its Washington state employees will get bonuses of nearly $600 million in the coming weeks.

It is the largest bonus in company history.

Boeing said the payouts "reward employees for helping Boeing deliver a record number of commercial airplanes and reach new highs in other categories in 2017."

The bonuses will be in paychecks in February and March.

“This just shows us that when we all work together, we can’t be beat,” said Kevin McAllister, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes in a news release. “When we all work to drive safety, quality, flow and productivity, we all share in the value.”
