REEL USA To Open Operations Hub At Mobile Alabama Aeroplex Facility
According to state officials, the company will lease 4,500 square feet of office, warehouse and workshop space at the Aeroplex, with an ability to expand as needed. REEL’s new Alabama facility will employ more than 20 people over the project’s three main phases.
REEL SAS operates several manufacturing plants in France and around the world, specializing in complex handling systems for clients in aerospace and other industries. REEL’s service division was awarded the jigs and tools maintenance service provider contract for the Airbus Alabama facility.
“Although the final assembly hangar is state of the art and expertly designed, the task of aircraft assembly will happen via the hands of the well-trained employees,” said Roger Wehner, Director of Mobile Airport Authority, which owns the Aeroplex. “The jigs and tools elevate them and facilitate the task, and REEL will help them maintain that critical foundation.
“While REEL will support the Airbus production facility, it also constitutes a critical capability set in our constant evolution, and we know this differentiates us from other communities,” Wehner added.
