MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA)- Make no mistake, Alabama officials are pulling out all the stops.
"We had a great, great contingent of folks here all the way from the governor's office, we had a couple congressmen, other state leaders from major companies," says Andalusia Mayor Earl Johnson.
Johnson's city is already home to some aerospace manufacturers.
That and Andalusia's proximity to Mobile mean his eye is on Airbus suppliers.
"You sit down face to face with the decision makers of the companies. And this is where you see all of the CEO's and the presidents and the vice executive presidents."
"I had an executive tell me if you were not in Alabama or trying to come to Alabama you didn't understand what was going on. So that's just good news for all," says Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange.
