On Monday, Bentley was in Auburn for the grand opening of General Electric Aviations jet engines component facility.

Tuesday, he joined officials of Mercedes-Benz U.S. International to break ground on a $70 million expansion in Tuscaloosa that will mean 600 new jobs.

Thursday, he was in Lincoln to join Honda officials in celebrating the unveiling of Acura’s MDX, which will be made exclusively in Alabama.

“I’m proud to be with you today in Covington County, celebrating this expansion,” Bentley said.

Declan O’Shea, president and CEO of Vector Aerospace Corporation, expressed his appreciation of the local employees who make continued growth of the Vector facility possible. He also saluted state and local government officials for their support.
