MONTGOMERY, AL -
Alabama Governor Robert Bentley on Thursday welcomed the first supplier to announce that it will locate in Alabama in support of the Airbus production facility in Mobile.
Labinal, through its subsidiary Safran Engineering Services, announced Thursday afternoon that the company will operate an engineering support facility at the Brookley Aeroplex. Labinal is part of the French aerospace giant Safran Group and is a global leader in electrical wiring systems for the aerospace and defense industries. Labinal is expected to hire 30 to 50 people for highly-skilled engineering support services jobs at the Mobile office.
"We are committed to recruiting high-quality, high-paying jobs," Governor Bentley said. "This announcement is the latest example of how state and local leaders work together to get positive results. I want to welcome Labinal and Safran Engineering Services as our newest corporate citizen, and I want to thank everyone who worked together to make this announcement possible."
Labinal has been in business for 90 years and has employees in 10 countries across the world. Labinal establishing a presence in Alabama further increases the state's profile and credibility in the global aerospace community.
Earlier this year, Governor Bentley and members of an Alabama delegation met with Labinal officials during a visit to the Farnborough International Airshow in England.
"Alabama is poised for tremendous growth in the aerospace sector," Governor Bentley said. "Labinal joining us in Alabama shows how we are building on the state's momentum in the aerospace industry. I am confident this is the first of many announcements of new jobs from companies that will support Airbus."
"Labinal is very excited to be the first supplier to join the Airbus Engineering team in Mobile, Alabama," said Karen Bomba, CEO of Labinal. "This new office reflects Labinal and Safran Engineering Services' commitment to support our customers locally and expand our relationship with Airbus. We look forward to being in Alabama and being part of the Mobile community."
Alabama Department of Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield joined Governor Bentley in welcoming Labinal. Canfield said the fact that Airbus is locating its first U.S.-based production facility in Alabama is drawing worldwide attention to the state, much like the announcement of Mecedes-Benz in 1993.
"There is no doubt that Alabama will continue to attract many more top-notch companies such as Labinal," Secretary Canfield said. "Alabama is already a U.S. leader in automotive manufacturing, and the Airbus announcement puts the state in line to be located in the middle of the next aerospace power center."
