Hexcel Celebrates Grand Opening of New Manufacturing Facility in Casablanca

Advanced composite materials manufacturer Hexcel celebrated the grand opening of its state-of-the art manufacturing facility at the MidParc Free Trade Zone in Casablanca today. The opening ceremony was attended by Mr Moulay Hafid Elalamy, Minister for Industry, Trade, Investment and Digital Economy; Nick Stanage, Hexcel Chairman, CEO and President; and Thierry Merlot, President, Aerospace – Europe/Asia Pacific/MEA.

At the new $20 million facility, Hexcel transforms lightweight honeycomb materials into engineered core parts that provide structural reinforcement for aerospace applications including aircraft structures, engine nacelles and helicopter blades. The site is expected to employ more than 200 people by 2020, and it made its first customer delivery last December.

The Moroccan plant is part of Hexcel’s ongoing worldwide investment to create a diversified and robust global supply chain to support aerospace customers’ growing demand for engineered core. In recent years, Hexcel has increased capacity at existing plants to support its engineered core business and plans further expansions to capture additional opportunities in a global market with excellent growth potential.
