European Company Will Visit Mobile Wednesday

By Alabama Public Radio

Mobile, AL – The Brookley Field Industrial Complex in Mobile will be on display Wednesday. Representatives from a subsidiary of the European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company will visit the site. E-A-D-S North America is considering the site for the company's proposed 600 million dollar aircraft engineering and assembly plant. The company, which is based in France, is considering four southern cities for the operation, and the company expects to chose a site in about four weeks. The operation would initially employ 150 people, but that could increase to one thousand if E-A-D-S wins a contract from the U-S Air Force.
