German based Winkelmann Group has announced a $12 million aviation related facility to be located in Auburn. The plant expects to offer 50 jobs within the next five years.
Gov. Kay Ivey made the announcement last week. She added, “As we declare to the world that Alabama is open for business, we welcome Wikelmann Group technology to our family of aerospace and defense related companies in Alabama.
Production is expected to begin in about two or three months, according to Arndt Siepmann, industrial development director for Auburn’s Economic Development Department.
