Nexans opens a new aircraft cable manufacturing plant in Morocco as part of its partnership with Airbus

Nexans, the worldwide leader in the cable industry, has opened a new manufacturing plant entirely dedicated to aircraft cables in Mohammedia (Morocco). The plant, which is now in operation, is the result of an agreement signed in 2008 between Nexans and Airbus for the supply of advanced cables for the aircrafts manufactured by Airbus (A320, A350, and A380).

This investment of nearly 10 million euros strengthens Nexans' aeronautical business as well as the core business of its Moroccan subsidiary, which already has strong expertise in the manufacturing of cables for the automotive, building and infrastructure industries. This is Nexans' third plant dedicated to aircraft cables, along with similar facilities based in France and the United States.

Nexans has redeveloped the Mohammedia plant to accommodate a production area of 3,000 m? designed to manufacture 21,000 km of cables per year, with 70 percent to be exported. 47 new job positions have been created and 2,300 hours of training have been delivered to newly hired engineers, technicians and operators.
