Airbus marks milestone in growth project adding 1,000 jobs in Mobile

MOBILE, Alabama — At a special expansion ceremony on Wednesday, Alabama officials congratulated Airbus for progress on a growth project launched last year to ramp up aircraft production and add 1,000 workers at the company’s Mobile manufacturing facility.

Governor Kay Ivey said the expansion project represents a milestone for Airbus, which announced plans for the Alabama facility in 2012 and has been in constant growth mode ever since.

“The relationship between Airbus and Alabama is a shining example of what can be accomplished when great organizations join hands,” she said. “Airbus, a global leader in the aerospace industry, has placed its trust in Alabama … and folks, we are rising to the occasion.

“This is ‘Team Alabama’ at its best — government, industry and community coming together to support a vital pillar of our state’s economy,” she added.
