Another company lands at Aeroplex

Safran company Messier-Bugatti-Dowty will set up shop at the Mobile Aeroplex in Mobile, Ala., according to the Mobile Airport Authority. The company provides aircraft landing and braking systems and will open an office and workshop at the Aeroplex at the end of the month. The announcement was made at the Paris Air Show currently underway. A Safran building at the Aeroplex slated to open in the next few years eventually will house Messier-Bugatti-Dowty and several sister companies, officials said.
