‘Alabamians are working hard to keep our nation secure,’
Birmingham, AL – Last week, Senator Luther Strange was hosted by the BAE Systems Forge Facility in Anniston to learn more about the operation and how it contributes to national security, as well as to the local economy and job market.
“Almost everywhere you go in Alabama, you can find Alabamians working hard to keep our nation secure, either by serving in our military, or helping to provide the resources our armed forces need to do their job,” said Strange, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. “The BEA Forge Facility is impressive to say the least, as it their dedication to their employees and local community.”
BAE Systems employs over 260 people across three locations in Anniston and is the primary designer, integrator and producer of military track for the U.S. military.
"We were excited to host Senator Strange at the BAE Systems Forge Facility and look forward to working with him in support for the nation and our employees in Anniston," said Max Dodd, BAE Systems Operations Manager. "During the visit we were able to show the Senator how his position as a Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee positively impacts Anniston combat vehicle programs, such as the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle."
