The Mobile area is winning even more aviation jobs from this week’s Paris Air Show. A German aviation company is expanding its south Alabama operation.
MAAS Aviation says it will build a new facility in Mobile for painting aircraft. The $39 million plan will include the creation of 80 new jobs along Alabama’s gulf coast.
The new MAAS facility will be at the Mobile Aeroplex site near the new Airbus manufacturing plant. Along with painting airplanes, it will repair and overhaul aircraft as well.
