Eurocopter inaugurates production center for high-technology aircraft components in Mexico
Eurocopter expanded its global industrial footprint and enhanced the company’s presence in Mexico with the inauguration of a new manufacturing center of excellence at Querétaro, which is to produce high-technology aircraft structural metallic components. Located at the Aerotech Industrial Park adjacent to Querétaro Intercontinental Airport, this 12,000 m² facility will be the single-source production site for structures used in jetliner doors that the company manufactures for Airbus, along with tail booms to equip Eurocopter Ecureuil helicopters. The site also is home to a recently-opened 1,000 m² maintenance center specialized in the Ecureuil family of helicopters, which serves the region’s Eurocopter clients operating the popular lightweight rotorcraft.
