ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Alaska Aerospace Corp., recognizing strong demand and aerospace industry growth in northeast Alabama, announces the opening of its new office in Huntsville, Alabama. This is the first permanent presence outside of Alaska for the company.
“Alaska Aerospace has supported a number of missions for the Missile Defense Agency and Space and Missile Defense Command, and by opening an office in Huntsville, we will be well positioned to be more responsive to our customers’ future needs,” said AAC President and CEO Craig E. Campbell.

AAC has worked with a number of commercial companies in the Huntsville area on both commercial and government aerospace programs.
Barry King will be the AAC Huntsville representative. King has extensive experience with local Huntsville aerospace companies and government agencies.
“As we work with MDA and SMDC to advance our nations capabilities, the establishment of our new office in Huntsville demonstrates AAC’s long term commitment to both the commercial and government programs being advanced in Madison County,” he said.
