When Airbus aircraft take to the skies, our pride and workmanship will soar along with them," Alabama Governor Robert Bentley said. "We owe thanks to so many people who helped make this effort a success. This project will create 1,000 stable, well-paying jobs that the people of this area need and deserve. Alabama has the best workforce you'll find anywhere in the U.S. Airbus has recognized all that this state can offer expanding industries, and the company is making a significant new investment in Alabama. Airbus and its parent company, EADS, have been great citizens of Alabama for years now, and we are excited to build on our wonderful relationship." Airbus to establish assembly line in United States - MarketWatch Thought , with all the doom and gloom these days a little good news is worth the read, Airbus will produce the A-320 in Mobile and during the construction phase it will bring an additional 2500 much needed jobs to the community , not to mention the all of the companies that will support the assembly plant. Our nation needs more of this sort of thing and more companies like Airbus to come here and take a chance on American made. Perhaps some of those so called American companies like Apple, Dell, and others can take a cue from Airbus who is a French company who thinks enough of American workers to take a chance on them that we have the ability to build it here too.
