HAMBURG, Germany — Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson told aviation company executives at a conference today in Germany that the Alabama city is an ideal location for supplier operations tied to Airbus’ passenger jet production center, now under construction at Brookley Aeroplex.

“I’m here today — just a month since taking office as mayor — to bring you a simple message: Mobile is open for business,” Stimpson said at the Aviation Forum 2013 in Hamburg. “The best way for you to meet Airbus’ needs will be to establish a presence in Mobile. My pledge to you is that we will be a good partner. Your success is our success.”

The Aviation Forum is a major industry event that attracts suppliers looking to work with aerospace giant Airbus around the globe. Stimpson is part of an Alabama delegation that includes Mobile area business leaders and Alabama Department of Commerce Assistant Director of Business Development Bob Smith. Alabama officials are working to position the state as the logical choice for Airbus suppliers.
