Fokker officially opens new manufacturing facility in Izmir, Turkey
Fokker Elmo, a business unit of Fokker Technologies, has officially opened its new 8,000 m² manufacturing facility for aerospace and defense electrical interconnection systems in the Aegean Free Zone in Izmir Turkey. Manufacturing in Izmir since 2008, Fokker Elmo’s newest facility now employs 275 highly qualified staff supported by the proprietary integrated Wiring Design and Manufacturing System (WDMS). Over the last 6 years, Fokker Elmo Turkey has successfully built its capabilities and activities into what is now a mature company which has outgrown its original facility. The new facility enables further growth to more than 400 employees in the next five years and optimizes operations to support current and future customers. At the end of January 2014, a very successful complete relocation to the new facility took place, enabling Fokker Elmo Turkey to further enhance its activities in Manufacturing, Engineering and Supply Chain Management.
