Brown Precision Plans $7 Million Manufacturing Facility In Atmore, Alabama
Brown’s facility in the southwest corner of the state is expected to create more than 100 jobs. The company manufactures complex components ranging from aircraft and helicopter components to artificial human joints.
“We think the Atmore area is a great fit for what we do at Brown Precision Inc., and we look forward to being part of the community,” said Dan Brown, the company’s Co-CEO and COO. “We believe southwest Alabama and the Coastal Gateway region is positioned extremely well as a point of growth for the aerospace industry, and we wanted to be on the leading edge of that.
Co-CEO and CFO Greg Brown said, “Brown Precision Inc. is excited to be part of the growing aerospace market in southwest Alabama, and for the partnerships we’ve already formed in the area,” he said.
“Aerospace is Alabama’s second fastest growing industry sector and a key target in my Accelerate Alabama economic development strategy,” Governor Robert Bentley said. “I’m committed to helping companies like Brown Precision expand in Alabama and strengthen their aerospace business.
“Brown Precision is a great addition to Southwest Alabama’s growing aerospace cluster, which is poised to become a key region in this global industry over the next decade,” said Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
Brown Precision will be the first industrial tenant in Atmore’s Rivercane Industrial Park, located at the intersection of Interstate 65 and Alabama 21. A new access road will be built in coming months, connecting with the state highway in front of Jefferson Davis Community College.
To develop the park, the city received funding commitments from the Alabama Department of Transportation, the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs and the Delta Regional Authority.
The Alabama Department of Commerce and AIDT, the state workforce development agency, lent support to the Brown Precision project, as did numerous local agencies and businesses. The Poarch Band of Creek Indians and Creek Indian Enterprises also supported the project.
