Bombardier Transfers Partial CSeries Production to Morocco

posted Feb 10, 2013, 6:44 AM by Michael Adams
Bombardier started production of some of the components of the CSeries airliner at a transitional manufacturing facility in Morocco, the company said Thursday.
The transitional facility at the Mohammed V International Airport in Nouaceur in the Greater Casablanca region is temporary until Bombardier completes the construction of its new permanent facility near the airport.
“With 18 new local employees fully engaged and trained in the Bombardier manufacturing process and philosophy, this is the first step towards a long future of quality component manufacturing at another world-class Bombardier facility,” said Hugo Brouilliard, general manager of the Morocco facility.
Bombardier said workers at its Morocco location are currently producing simple structures including flight controls for the CRJSeries. The company expects to enter the CS100 CSeries into service in June.
