Tory Bruno, president and CEO of United Launch Alliance, has welcomed Blue Origin's move to establish a rocket engine manufacturing facility in Alabama.

Blue Origin will join the more than 200 technology suppliers that support ULA operations within the state, Bruno said in a statement released Friday.

"The state of Alabama knows how to attract and help business grow and I could not be more thrilled to be part of the resurgence of rocket and engine development in the Tennessee Valley."

ULA selected Blue Origin's BE-4 technology to power the Vulcan Centaur launch vehicle designed to send government and commercial satellite missions into space. Aerojet RocketdyneNorthrop GrummanL3 Technologies and RUAG will respectively provide an upper-stage engine, solid rocket boosters, avionics and payload fairings for integration into the rocket,

Bruno previously said ULA aims to begin Vulcan certification flights sometime in 2021 as part of a launch services agreement with the U.S. Air Force and launch the platform by mid-2020.
