Mobile gets supplier

MOBILE, Ala. -- The first Airbus-related supplier said it will build a $2 million engineering facility at Mobile's Brookley Aeroplex. The official word from Safran Engineering Services Thursday afternoon came five months after Airbus said it will build an A320 assembly line in Mobile. The Safran facility will open in 2013 and employ 50 engineers. One of its neighbors at Brookley will be the Airbus Engineering Center. Bruno Bernard, chief executive officer of Safran Engineering Services, said the company plans to "continue to grow with Mobile in its upward trajectory."
