Alabama company gets $17M Air Force cargo pallet contract


DECATUR, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama company has won a $17 million contract to make all-aluminum pallets for military cargo planes.

A list of Pentagon contracts approved Tuesday says Wolverine Tube Inc., of Decatur, was among five competitors for the Air Force contract. The all-aluminum pallets were designed to replace those made with aluminum glued to a balsa wood core.

The work in Decatur is expected to be completed Nov. 18, 2022.
