Huge vacant Birmingham (Alabama) aerospace facility to be marketed at Paris Airshow

The largest business space in Birmingham, AL, will be marketed in Paris with City Council president Johnathan Austin and other city leaders set to attend the 51st Annual Paris Air Show.

The contingent are travelling to the trade show specifically to try and attract a new tenant for the Kaiser Aerospace facility located next to the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport.

With 1.8 million sq ft of space, it is one of the largest in the world and is able to accommodate everything from airline or engine manufacturing to international packaging, shipping and receiving.

The complex, last operated by Kaiser Aircraft Industries, stands on 180 acres just off Interstate 20/59, minutes from downtown Birmingham. The hangar has 10 bays, each 160 feet wide and 725 feet deep, with 40-foot ceilings and concrete floors a foot thick. The complex has a paint hangar, warehouse space, offices and more.

The facility is just over three and a half hours north of Mobile, Alabama, the site of the new $600m Airbus facility where the company will be assembling the A320 Family aircraft. Airbus will employ 1,000 people at its Alabama manufacturing center, and suppliers and service providers are expected to create another 4,000 jobs.
