AIRINC to close Fairhope facility

FAIRHOPE, Ala. - The Fokker AIRINC parts repair facility will close by October, shifting operations to a larger, sister aircraft parts repair facility in LaGrange, Ga. Fokker Technologies said that some of the 55 Fairhope employees could be offered transfers. Frans van de Pol, vice president of component repair, said the parent company continues to wait for its business to recover from the recession. Fokker Services mainly repairs parts for U.S. airlines and other parts suppliers. (Source: Mobile Press-Register, 07/29/11)
