Bombardier Aerospace today announced that the aft fuselage of its new Global 7000 and Global 8000 business jets will be built at its site in Queretaro, Mexico.

"Our Queretaro site is already producing large components for several of our current production business aircraft, including the Global 5000 and Global 6000 jets," said Steve Ridolfi, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Its participation in the Global 7000 and Global 8000 jet program will further contribute to this world-class facility's expertise and Bombardier's expansion of its leadership worldwide."

The Queretaro site currently produces the aft fuselage of the Global 5000 and Global 6000 jets, as well as the Learjet 85 aircraft's major composite structures, including fuselage lay-up and sub-system installation, wiring harness fabrication and installation, wing assembly, and horizontal and vertical stabilizer assemblies.

"We are very proud to be part of the Global 7000 and Global 8000 aircraft production team," said Real Gervais, Vice President, Mexico Manufacturing Centre, Bombardier Aerospace. "We are confident that our team's proven experience, dedication and commitment to excellence on the current production Global aircraft will make a positive contribution to these innovative new aircraft."
