Neighbor courts ST Aerospace

MOBILE, Ala. -- As Mobile chased new aerospace projects this spring, officials from nearby Pensacola, Fla., were in town courting ST Aerospace Mobile. Win Hallett, president and chief executive officer of the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce, told the Press-Register that a Pensacola delegation visited with ST Aerospace executives this spring to lure part or all of the 1,000-employee airplane repair company's operations. It's not clear which side initiated the contact. ST Aerospace Mobile President Joseph Ng did not immediately return calls requesting comment. Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward, through a spokesman, declined to comment. (Source: Mobile Press-Register, 06/28/12) Previous post of Mobile operation moving to Pensacola.
