By: Greg Canfield, Alabama Secretary of Commerce

LONDON, England – Over the next few days, Governor Robert Bentley and I will engage in more than 20 meetings with aerospace companies at the Farnborough International Air Show, which will play host to the global industry’s key decision-makers. Additionally, during this international event two members of the Commerce Business Development Team will engage in dozens of other meetings with companies from around the globe.

Our mission there is simple: Position Alabama as the best place for aerospace investment and new jobs.

Alabama has a long history in aerospace and aviation, and the state has a robust presence in the industry. Alabama is home to the biggest players in the business – Boeing, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, GE Aviation, GKN Aerospace, and the list goes on. With Alabama’s 400 aerospace companies representing 30 countries and 83,000 people employed in the aerospace and defense industry, our state is establishing its place in this vital sector.
