Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- Leading Canadian-owned plane manufacturer Bombardier is boosting its presence in Morocco and Mexico in the wake of the company’s ongoing change of its strategic plans, a change aimed to cut its global production costs to cope with global competition.
According to the Belfast Telegraph, more than 700 staff from the leading Canadian company’s Belfast manufacturing plant “are due to go this year, with 1,080 planned by 2017.”
Bombardier said it is transferring some of its activities to Morocco and Mexico to help optimize its “manufacturing footprint and ensure the future success” of its business overall.
It is worth reminding that the Moroccan-based Bombardier plant focuses mainly on producing operational parts for the company’s CSeries, QSeries and CRJ jets.
