Chamber scouts suppliers

BERLIN, Germany -- The international business community is now associating Airbus with Mobile. That's according to Troy Wayman of the Mobile Chamber of Commerce, who spoke to the Mobile Press-Register by phone Wednesday from the ILA Berlin Air Show. Airbus in July said it would build an A320 assembly line in Mobile at Brookley Aeroplex. On Wednesday alone chamber officials met with four potential Airbus suppliers.

They've reportedly met with more than 20 prospects. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 09/12/12)
