2nd Airbus supplier picks Mobile

MOBILE, Ala. -- Logistics company Kuehne + Nagel North America plans to open an office in Mobile. It's the second Airbus-related supplier for the Alabama port city. Kuehne + Nagel is the principal logistical supplier for Airbus in Hamburg, Germany. A Kuehne + Nagel release said the Mobile office will offer logistics to companies from the aerospace industry as well as from the oil and gas and marine sectors. Airbus broke ground April 8 on its A320 final production line at Brookley Aeroplex. The first supplier, Safran Engineering Services, opened its Brookley office hours before the Airbus groundbreaking.
