Officials welcome Airbus plans to expand Alabama A320 production

Alabama leaders hailed plans announced today by Airbus to increase production of A320 aircraft at the company’s Mobile manufacturing facility, where it will invest $40 million to construct a new support hangar.

On top of a project to add a new A220 assembly line at the site, Airbus’ latest expansion pushes its total investment in Alabama’s Port City to more than $1 billion.

“Airbus’ ever-expanding footprint in Mobile has become the core of a rapidly growing aerospace cluster throughout the Gulf Coast. Moreover, the company’s plans to increase aircraft production in Alabama, yet once again, means new investment and new jobs.” Governor Kay Ivey said.

“Today’s news of the Airbus expansion is a big vote of confidence in the quality and caliber of the Alabama workforce. Today’s announcement will also better position Mobile to remain on track to becoming one of the top four cities in the world for aerospace manufacturing,” she added.
