Shimco, a world-renowned Canadian manufacturer specializing in aerospace and defense components, has begun construction on a new facility in Casablanca’s Nouaceur Free Zone.

Spanning 15,000 square meters, this state-of-the-art plant is expected to be operational by early 2025. It will focus on producing a range of parts for the aerospace and defense industries.

CEO Peter Voss announced that the Moroccan plant might double in size within the next three years to meet increasing demand, particularly due to a long-term contract with Airbus. This expansion follows a partnership agreement signed in March 2024 and coincides with the construction of a new Pratt & Whitney Canada facility in the same area.
