Expansions propel aerospace industry’s growth trajectory in Morgan County

DECATUR, Alabama — Morgan County led the way in Alabama for aerospace industry investment in 2017, landing new facilities and expansion projects worth more than $336 million and spurring job growth.

A longtime hub of industry for the state, the county’s assets include its location along the Tennessee River and a solid lineup of businesses already tied to the sector.

“We are fortunate that our existing aerospace-related industries continue to reinvest in their facilities as their businesses grow and evolve,” said Jeremy Nails, president and CEO of the Morgan County Economic Development Association (MCEDA).

“We also benefit by working with them to co-locate other aerospace related companies and customers close to their existing operations.”
