After Landing Airbus, City Woos Suppliers

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama -

City officials are not stopping at bringing in Airbus, they're hoping suppliers will follow them to the port city.

Monday afternoon, after the groundbreaking, Mobile's economic development team was trying to woo some of those companies.

They held a special reception dinner just for Airbus suppliers.

Mayor Sam Jones while airbus is big it's the suppliers that could have the biggest impact in mobile,  but getting them here is the challenge.

"And a lot of these folks are from different parts of the country, some might be even from other countries, but they came in for this. We wanted to have a little reception for them and welcome them and really introduce them to Mobile and let them know how interested we are in them doing business in Mobile," said Jones.

One company has already moved to Mobile, Safran which held a ribbon cutting for their new facility Monday morning.
