Posted 7 February 2018 · Add Comment

Daher has inaugurated its new plant in Tangier at a ceremony attended by Moulay Hafid Elalamy, Morocco's Minister of Industry, Trade and the Digital Economy, along with Daherís CEO, Didier Kayat, and Chairman, Patrick Daher.

The new site strengthens the company’s position in Morocco as an aircraft manufacturer, equipment supplier and service provider. It follows a first site in Tangier in 2001 and a second in Casablanca in 2007.

The site represents an investment of more than €15 million as part of Daher's ongoing development in Morocco, which has a booming aerospace ecosystem. It spans around 10,000 m2, giving Daher a total of 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.
Didier Kayat, Daher CEO: "Training, job quality, strict compliance with relevant process and production standards, geographic proximity and overheads were all deciding factors in choosing to expand our industrial footprint in Morocco. Our business development policy also provides support for our employees in the country, who benefit from a program to build skills and provide training in Daher quality and safety."
 
Production at the new Tangier plant began in Q3 2017 and covers Daher's full range of aerospace expertise in metal and composite structures and parts for the aircraft engine environment.
