S&S Sprinkler Soaring High with 2014 Airbus Project

2014 was quite an exciting year for S&S. We had the privilege of providing the fire protection infrastructure for the new Central Utilities Plant on the Airbus site in Mobile.

The $600 million Airbus aircraft assembly plant is a game-changing project for, not just Mobile, but for the entire region. During its construction period alone, it has created more than 3,000 jobs in the area. “Alabama has the best workforce you’ll find anywhere in the U.S.,” Airbus President and CEO Fabrice Bregier said. “When Airbus aircraft take to the skies, our pride and workmanship will soar along with them.”

The plant, which is projected to have a $61 million annual payroll at full capacity, will have an annual economic impact of $409 million on Alabama’s economy. The majority of that money will benefit our very own Mobile County, which was projected to see an additional $348 million in annual economic activity when the plant reaches full employment.

“We [were] honored to have been selected as one of, if not the first, fire protection contractor for the Airbus site,” said Derick Boutwell, S&S Project Manager.

We also had the pleasure of using Victaulic products on the Airbus site. Their easy-to-install products allowed us to work through the job quickly and efficiently. Using their state-of-the-art designs is always a great solution for any job we work, especially those with a tight construction schedule.

S&S has been the leader in the fire sprinkler protection & security industry across the Gulf Coast for 42 years, and it was an honor to work on a project that will change the economy of the state of Alabama and the face of aviation for the entire country. Leland Moore, Sr., S&S Chairman of the Board stated, “Our selection reflects the expertise and service that our customers rely on each day. I couldn’t be more proud of our team…”

Airbus – Welcome To Mobile

S&S_airbus_blog (1)

Here at S&S Sprinkler we’re really excited about the opportunities, energy and worldwide attention that Airbus is going to bring to our city. Airbus has some really great new job and economic opportunities to bring to our local, state, and even regional businesses, and we can’t wait to have them here this coming April.

Airbus will create new jobs in construction of the assembly plant and in building the airplanes themselves- the first of which will be able to fly from the Mobile nest by Mardi Gras 2016. So Airbus is bringing opportunities for the future; and what’s better than a future full of possibilities?

Derick Boutwell, our Project Manager here at S&S went with other potential suppliers to learn about opportunities to be a supplier at Airbus’ Mobile assembly plant.

In Local NBC 15’s story on the Airbus’s meeting with potential suppliers, Derick got his full 8 seconds of fame. He said, “We’re here just to figure out what’s going on with Airbus and to hopefully learn about some new opportunities.” Go Derick!
