Consul visits Mobile's MAAS

MOBILE, Ala. – Officials from Dublin-based MAAS Aviation and the Atlanta-based consul general of Ireland were in Mobile Thursday. The consul, Shane Stephens, was with a delegation of European representatives to visit the Gulf Coast to celebrate European investments in this part of the world. MAAS set up shop at the Mobile Aeroplex to paint planes for the Airbus assembly line. Later it built another paint facility for after-market customers. Just a year after breaking ground, it’s repainted some 40 planes. MAAS officials said they are excited about the growth potential of the Mobile area. (Sources:, WALA-TV, WKRG-TV, 02/08/18)
