Alabama seeks deeper relationships with aerospace suppliers in Seattle

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Alabama’s top economic developer traveled to Seattle, Wash., this week to foster deeper relationships with aerospace suppliers as Alabama moves to become the next global center of passenger jet production.

Alabama Secretary of State Greg Canfield, who was in Seattle for the British-American Business Council Aerospace Convention, is targeting the development of a supplier infrastructure in the state as Airbus prepares to ramp up production of A320 family aircraft in Mobile.

Because of Airbus’ presence, Canfield told The Seattle Times that he expects the aerospace industry to grow in Alabama in the same way the automotive industry has, through assembly plant expansions and the creation of an ever-widening supplier base.
