Mobile aerospace cluster set for future growth as expansion plans take shape

MOBILE, Alabama — New investments by key players in the Mobile aerospace cluster are setting the stage for future growth at what has become a major production hub for the global aviation industry.

Airbus Americas is increasing its investment in the A220 final assembly line at its Alabama manufacturing facility by an additional $18.8 million, according to the Mobile Chamber. The company’s investment in jigs, tools and manufacturing machinery will provide a significant boost to its current operations in Mobile.

Airbus announced plans for A220 aircraft manufacturing in Mobile in October 2017, and it officially opened the A220 Final Assembly Line in May 2020. This past September, Airbus celebrated the 50th A220 built in Mobile.

Airbus plans to break ground on the A220 expansion in January 2024, according to the Chamber.
