MAAS expanding Mobile presence

MOBILE, Ala. -- MAAS Aviation will build a second paint operation at Mobile Aeroplex, this one a $39 million twin-bay paint facility expected to create 80 jobs and focus on the commercial maintenance, repair and overhaul market. The Mobile Airport Authority announced Tuesday that the new facility will complement MAAS' soon-to-be completed facility on the Airbus manufacturing plant and will be located on two acres between Airbus and the VT MAE's maintenance, repair and overhaul hangar complex. Dublin, Ireland-based MAAS also operates paint shops in Hamburg, Germany, and the Netherlands, and secured a long-term contract to be the exclusive paint service provider to Airbus Americas Inc. to paint all Airbus A320 family aircraft to be manufactured at the Airbus plant in Mobile.
