One of thyssenkrupp Aerospace's strength is customer proximity thereby offering individual and reliable material and supply chain solutions locally. For this reason, the aerospace specialists further expanded their global network last year and built a new location in Morocco.
"The aerospace industry has been growing rapidly over the last years, which is why reliable, timely supply and sustainable quality via a local presence is very important to our customers. Our new materials processing and logistics centre in Casablanca serves precisely these needs and ensures just-in-time supply to our customers," explains Eric Cornilleau, Managing Director thyssenkrupp Aerospace France.
The first customers already take benefit from the new warehouse. Since many years, these partners are part of thyssenkrupp Aerospace’s customer base and were previously supplied from France.
"Thanks to our immediate proximity, we have now significantly shortened the distances to our local customers, which benefits our partners enormously and allows to develop our relationships with additional volumes to be supplied to the Moroccan companies. With the delivery of our first major order for processed aluminum plates, our Casablanca site is fully operational," says Cornilleau.
Proximity to local partners is particularly important for short-term delivery requests. In addition, customers no longer have to operate their own warehouses and can have their required materials delivered just-in-time.
About the location
The new branch is located on an area of around 3,500 m² (warehouse, production hall and offices) in the Ouled Salah area, between the city centre of Casablanca and the airport industrial area. In addition to the storage of materials such as aluminum, steel and copper in various forms and alloys, the service portfolio also includes extensive processing services. State-of-the-art machines cut the material exactly to customer specifications and deliver it just-in-time to the customer's plant.
