ASM AÉRO becomes SABCA MAROC

  • The SABCA group ties its name to its fourth site in Casablanca, which now operates under the name SABCA Maroc.
  • This change in identity is part of the SABCA group’s move to unify its 4 sites under a single brand: ONESABCA.
  • SABCA Maroc inaugurate its new name on the occasion of the state visit of Her Royal Highness Princess Astrid of Belgium, Representative of His Majesty the King.

ASM Aéro, a joint venture created in 2012 between the SABCA group (60%) and AAA (40%), becomes SABCA Maroc. The name-change has been effective since 1 September 2018

With its facilities located in the Nouaceur industrial park, in the immediate vicinity of Casablanca’s Mohammed V International Airport, SABCA Maroc is specialised in the assembly of aerostructure subassemblies, and its activities fit perfectly with the group’s growth strategy for civil and military aviation activities.

SABCA Group CEO Thibauld Jongen said of this announcement that: ‘The SABCA Group pursues its transformation plan to be more Robust, Profitable and Competitive in its offer of products and services. As such, it is therefore logic that we place our Moroccan production unit under the hundred-years-old SABCA name. SABCA Maroc is an enormous asset in meeting our customers’ needs. This name change improves the visibility of SABCA’s overall business offering.’

 

The Activities of the Casablanca Plant
SABCA Maroc’s activities began in Spring 2012, with the training of plant operators in partnership with the “Institut des Métiers de l’Aéronautique” (IMA). In November 2012, SABCA Maroc delivered its first structural components for Airbus aircraft, followed, in June 2013, by its first sub-assemblies for the DASSAULT FALCON.

Through its modern production facilities and EN 9100 quality certification, paired with renowned expertise in the fields of riveting, sealing, and painting, SABCA Maroc has the ability to meet the demands of the main market players.
