Gulf Shores Assemblies, founded in 2007, is one of three certified minority-owned companies providing manufacturing and modular assembly services that make up the Modular Assembly Innovations Company.
Gulf Shores Assemblies had an existing deal to provide wheel assemblies for Honda. However, a business consultant for the MBDA Business Center in Mobile made the company aware that Honda was adding a new line of automobiles to its production facility in Lincoln.
Mobile MBDA consultants met with owner Billy Vickers to discuss staffing for this large opportunity and tracked the progress of the bid. The MBDA staff’s extensive experience in the automotive industry gave Gulf Shores Assemblies an advantage in crafting a winning proposal for a $200 million contract that created and retained 51 jobs and gave the company a 45% increase in revenue.
