Rohr Aero Services, Inc.
The Rohr Aero Services in Fairhope, Alabama subsidiary was an office and manufacturing facility which opened in 1984. In July of 1988 constuction on a new facility was started, and in late April of 1989 employees were occupying it. On June 2 of that same year Rohr Aero Services in Fairhope was officially dedicated at a ribbon cutting ceremony. The building was a $6 million 122,000 square foot facility that employed Rohr employees and representatives. It repaired and modified "commercial and business jet nacelles and thrust reversers for customers around the world" (Hulewicz, 1989).
Rohr was planning on selling this facility (Rohr, p. 51).
The Fairhope plant is a nonunion facility (Schena, 24 Sept 1990).
By 1990, Rohr Fairhope worked on "repair, modification and overhaul of Rohr products" and had 70 employees (Rohr, 1990).
