MOBILE, Alabama – Airbus today marked a major milestone in Alabama as it celebrated the 10-year anniversary of the engineering operation that was the forerunner to its aircraft manufacturing facility here.
Employees of Airbus Engineering were joined by state and local leaders to recognize the success of the Airbus Engineering Center in Mobile.
“Our success is entirely a result of good people who first came with a shared mission to build something from the ground up, and now work hard every day to make Airbus a leading aircraft manufacturer,” said David Trent, the site director of the Airbus Engineering Center who has led the team since the beginning.
“We have 220 people here who have the respect of their colleagues in Europe and are seen as an integral part of Airbus around the world. We also are proud to have been a part of Mobile for the past decade, and look forward to working together to ensure Airbus is an integral part of this community for many more years to come.”
