The Canadian Bombardier announced Thursday its intention to divest certain activities in Morocco. An announcement that immediately raised fears of possible job cuts. The Moroccan subsidiary has however reassured about the continuity of its activities in the Kingdom. They say that today’s announcement “has no impact on our workforce within the site of Morocco.” “There will be no dismissal, all positions are maintained and the expansion project,” says a source within Bombardier. And to clarify: “Bombardier has announced its intention to sell and not the actual sale”.
As a reminder, the Moroccan site operates mainly in the assembly. “This is a world-class site that produces wing components, nacelle and floors for regional CRJ aircraft, fuselage parts and Learjet business jet doors, as well as subassemblies for aircraft in various programs”, details the company.
