Airbus announced in July 2012 that it would establish a major manufacturing facility in the United States to assemble and deliver A320 Family single-aisle aircraft. Located at the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley, in Mobile, Alabama, it is the company’s first U.S.-based commercial aircraft production facility. The assembly line, which strengthens overall the U.S. aerospace industry, is part of Airbus’ strategy to enhance its global competitiveness by meeting the growing needs of its customers in the United States and beyond.
Aircraft assembly began in Mobile in July 2015. The first aircraft produced in Mobile was delivered in April 2016. Airbus is producing nearly 60 A319, A320 and A321 aircraft each year at current rate. The complex represents a $600 million investment. In January 2019, a groundbreaking was held to launch construction of a new assembly line for A220 aircraft. Production will begin in Q3 2019. The vast majority of the aircraft manufactured in the Mobile facility will be delivered to North American customers. The Airbus U.S. Manufacturing Facility is the third Airbus activity in Mobile: the company also has an Engineering Center – also located at the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley – employing more than 200 engineers and support staff, as well as a North American military customer services operation supporting U.S. Coast Guard aircraft near the Mobile
