RUAG Space celebrates opening its facility in Decatur

Morgan County Economic Association would like to welcome the first Swiss Company, RUAG Space USA Inc. to Decatur/Morgan County. On May 31, 2017,  we celebrated a unique ribbon cutting in RUAG’s new 100,000 square foot space they are leasing in the United Launch Alliance facility. ULA and RUAG have been strategic partners for over a decade; they are excited to start producing the payload fairing and other carbon fiber structures here in Morgan County, which will be much more convenient for their customer, ULA. Currently RUAG employs 50 and they anticipate over 100 when the site is fully operational. MCEDA would like to thank Alabama State Senator Orr, Congressman Mo Brooks, and United States Senator, Luther Strange for attending today and supporting our efforts to make this collaboration a reality. We would also like to thank the City of Decatur, the Morgan County Commission, the Cooperative District, the Tennessee Valley Authority, and the State of Alabama for their support with this project.
