Tonight, nearly 200 people attended a Mobile Bay Aerospace Reception, including Airbus Chief Executive Tom Enders, Airbus Americas Chairman of the Board Alan McArtor and Lockheed Martin Chairman, President & CEO Marillyn Hewson. From the state, Gov. Robert Bentley, Alabama Department of Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield and Rep. Bradley Byrne also attended.
Attendees included existing aerospace company representatives from local companies such as Singapore Technologies, Airbus Military NA, Safran and Airbus, as well as dozens of potential supplier industries and new investors in the area.
While speaking to attendees who are considering the Mobile Bay region to locate, Byrne said, “We want you to carefully consider being a part of our family.”
The trade show continues on Wednesday for most of the local delegation.
