Daher has inaugurated its new plant in Tangier this month, strengthening the company’s position in Morocco as an aircraft manufacturer, equipment supplier and service provider. It follows the first site established at Tangier in 2001, and a second created at Casablanca during 2007.
The new plant sits just 500 meters from the other facility in the Tangier Free Zone, near the airport. It will support the ramp-up in production for international aerospace programs partnered by Daher, and provide a platform to better meet the needs of such customers as Airbus for its commercial aircraft and helicopters, as well as Dassault.
The site represents an investment of more than €15m as part of Daher’s ongoing development in Morocco, which has a booming aerospace ecosystem. It spans an area of approximately 10,000 m², giving Daher a total 30,000 m² of production facilities in the country. The new plant will eventually employ more than 250 people, adding to the 550-strong workforce at the other two sites.
