Kudos for Airbus project, chamber

Site Selection magazine named the Airbus final assembly line being built at Brookley Aeroplex in Mobile, Ala., among its top 10 U.S. deals for 2012. Top deals were selected based upon the level of capital investment, degree of high-value jobs, creativity in negotiations and incentives, regional economic impact, competition for the project and speed to market. Ground was broken in April for the $600 million assembly line. In addition, the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce was listed by Site Selection as among the "Best to Invest" U.S. economic development groups for 2012. (Source:, 05/03/13)
