Alabama team to attend air show

Alabama leaders, economic development specialists and local officials from around the state will head to the Paris Air Show in a bid to expand Alabama's aerospace industry. The show begins Monday and runs through June 23. The delegation from Alabama will meet with more than 20 companies over the course of the show. Some of the companies already have a presence in Alabama, while others are prospects. The Department of Commerce says more than 300 aerospace and aviation companies and organizations operate across Alabama. One of those companies is Airbus, which is building a $600 million A320 assembly line in Mobile. (Source: Made in Alabama, 06/12/13) Related
