Airbus has started hiring factory workers at its planned Alabama A220 assembly site in advance of a goal to begin production there later this year.
In what Airbus calls a "first wave" of hiring, the company has started recruiting aircraft structure and installation mechanics, aircraft electricians and aircraft cabin furnishing installers, Airbus says.
Airbus seeks workers with at least two years of experience in aviation and aerospace production, though new workers will also receive several weeks of training, potentially including training at Airbus' primary A220 assembly site in Mirabel.
The call for candidates comes as Airbus prepares to break ground next week on construction of its planned Mobile A220 site.
