    Rabat - Belgium aerospace group Societe Anonyme Belge de Constructions Aeronautiques (SABCA) inaugurated on Wednesday a new aerostructure assembly plant in Nouaceur in the Casablanca province.

    The MAD 180 million ($16.81 million) factory covers an area of 16,000 square meters creating approximately 240 jobs.

    The inauguration of the plant reflects SABCA’s determination to grow its presence in Morocco.

    Secretary General of Morocco’s Ministry of Industry Taoufiq Mocharraf attended the ceremony along with CEO of Orizio Stephane Burton, the parent company of SABCA as well as other representatives from SABCA and aircraft company Pilatus.

    Moucharraf emphasized Morocco’s satisfaction with the inauguration, which “came to consecrate a new era for the Moroccan aeronautical industry.”

    He emphasized that the inauguration also reflects the “quality and competitiveness” of Morocco’s aeronautical base as well as the “trust” it enjoys with global companies.

    CEO of Orizio also welcomed the partnership between Morocco and the Belgian manufacturer, saying: “Our group is delighted to be able to develop the activities of its subsidiary SABCA, here in Casablanca, and those of its subsidiary Sabena Engineering.”

    The two Orizio subsidiaries offer “concrete and operational cutting-edge solutions, integrating environmental issues as much as possible while guaranteeing excellence and agility to meet the groups’ customers expectations,” he said.

    CEO of SABCA Thibauld Jongen also emphasized the importance of the project, emphasizing that it offers a “wide range of expertise in the design of metal and compostite aero-structures in manufacturing and assembly in the design of actuation equipment for the general aviation sector.”

    Morocco has been strengthening its position as home of the largest aeronautics project by world-class manufacturers, including Airbus, Pilatus, Daher, and SABCA.

    The North African country frequently emphasized determination to continue to boost the sector’s potential. The industry continues to be one of the fastest-growing sectors in Morocco.

    Aeronautics’ exports reached $1.4 billion, up from $958 million last year.
