FAIRHOPE, Ala. (AP) — Aero-mark is planning to reopen a Fairhope facility to build, assemble and repair aircraft parts.
The Mobile Press-Register reports that the firm and local officials said Thursday that the Aero-mark MRO plant will open in January at the Fairhope airport.
The company said in the statement it hopes to soon begin work on commercial aircraft components.
Aero-mark once owned a repair station at the airport that was sold to another firm in 2006. That company eventually closed the plant and moved operations to LaGrange, Ga.
Aero-mark plans to employ about 25 workers in the first year and expand to about 60 employees within three years. The company plans to invest about $2.3 million in the operation.
