U.S. Chamber of Commerce : Jul 02 - U.S. Chamber Applauds Airbus Announcement of New U.S. Manufacturing Plant

07/02/2012 | 02:17pm US/Eastern

WASHINGTON D.C.-The U.S. Chamber of Commerce applauded aircraft manufacturer Airbus today for their announcement of a new manufacturing facility in Mobile, Alabama. This manufacturing facility, the company's first based in the U.S., will add as many as 1,000 new high-skilled jobs to the 210,000 American jobs already supported by the company's partnerships with hundreds of U.S. suppliers in more than 40 states.

"Today's announcement is a clear signal to companies around the world that the U.S. remains a major manufacturing hub that welcomes investment," said Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber. "A leader in the global aerospace industry, Airbus' decision shows enormous confidence not only in U.S. markets but also in U.S. workers."

"This is another step forward in our country's broader economic recovery, but we must continue to foster a business friendly environment. Global capital and investment will only go where it is safe and welcome," Donohue continued.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world's largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
