Birmingham team pitches aerospace growth potential at Paris Air Show

PARIS — A group of economic development specialists, airport leaders and government officials from the Birmingham region has landed at the 2023 Paris Air Show with a strategic plan to elevate the profile of Alabama’s largest metro area in the aerospace industry.

“Team BHM” is telling industry decision-makers about ambitious growth initiatives at the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport, the expanding presence of a high-tech defense company and the region’s prime location in a major aerospace/defense cluster, among other things.

“The trajectory and growth of the aerospace industry has exponential growth opportunities ahead of it,” said Steve Ammons, president and CEO of the Birmingham Business Alliance, a core member of the regional team attending the Paris Air Show.

“Alongside our excellent partners in the community like City of Birmingham, Jefferson County and the Birmingham Airport Authority, we’re working to position the Greater Birmingham Region to have success in the industry for years to come,” he added.
