Sports equipment maker UAB will build a new factory to assemble athletic gear for the University at Alabama and other universities.
The company is expected to begin production by the end of 2019.
UAB Athletics, a division of UAB, began manufacturing athletic equipment for the school in 2002.
The equipment company is a subsidiary of Adidas.
The Alabama-based company’s athletic equipment division has produced products for the university’s men’s basketball, football and track and field teams for nearly a decade.
