Labinal announces opening of a new office in Mobile, Alabama

Mobile, Alabama, December 6, 2012

Labinal (Safran group) through its subsidiary Safran Engineering Services announced today it will open a new office in early 2013 in Mobile, Alabama.

Located at the Brookley Aeroplex, this new engineering office will support aerospace and transportation companies in Alabama and bring additional capabilities and support to Airbus, a Labinal customer. The Brookley Aeroplex also hosts Singapore Technologies, another Labinal customer and is less than 1 mile from the future Airbus Final Assembly Line. Over the years, Alabama State officials, the City of Mobile, the Mobile Airport Authority, and the characteristic southern hospitality of local residents have made Alabama consistently attractive for new business.

"Labinal is very excited to be the first supplier to join the Airbus Engineering team in Mobile, Alabama. This new office reflects Labinal and Safran Engineering Services' commitment to support our customers locally and expand our relationship with Airbus. We look forward to being in Alabama and being part of the Mobile community." says Karen Bomba CEO of Labinal.

Safran Engineering Services headquarters is in Toulouse, France with offices in Everett, Washington, Wichita, Kansas and Chihuahua, Mexico and soon in Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil. They currently employ approximately 3,300 engineers and technicians globally.
