Huntsville-based aerospace engineering company, Brown Precision Inc.plans to invest $7 million to open a manufacturing facility in Atmore, creating more than 100 jobs in the south Alabama town, Gov. Robert Bentley‘s office announced last week.
“Aerospace is Alabama’s second-fastest growing industry sector and a key target in my Accelerate Alabama economic development strategy,” Bentley said. “I’m committed to helping companies like Brown Precision expand in Alabama and strengthen their aerospace business.”

Founded in 1964, the family-owned company performs precision machining for clients in the aerospace and medical industries. It manufactures complex components ranging from aircraft and helicopter components to artificial human joints.

The company’s clients include GE Aviation, GKN Aerospace, Bell, PPG Aerospace, and Smith and Nephew.

“Brown Precision is a great addition to Southwest Alabama’s growing aerospace cluster, which is poised to become a key region in this global industry over the next decade,” said Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “Brown Precision counts many of the industry’s biggest names as clients, so its expansion to Atmore says a lot about the region’s potential.”

Brown Precision intends to make an initial investment of $7 million at the Atmore facility, which will be located at the intersection of Interstate 65 and Alabama 21, with possible plans to expand in the future.

“We think the Atmore area is a great fit for what we do at Brown Precision Inc., and we look forward to being part of the community,” said Dan Brown, the company’s co-CEO and chief operating officer. “We believe Southwest Alabama and the Coastal Gateway region is positioned extremely well as a point of growth for the aerospace industry, and we wanted to be on the leading edge of that. We look forward to putting down roots that will hold for many years to come.”

“This is huge news for Atmore, Escambia County and South Alabama,” State Auditor Jim Zeigler said ” This is a real game changer.”
