Bombardier Aerospace Begins Production of the First Components in Morocco 
MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Bombardier Aerospace
today announced the start of production at its transitional facility
in Morocco. Following a graduation ceremony held on February 1 at the
Institut des Metiers de l'Aeronautique (IMA), 18 aircraft assemblers
began production of the first Bombardier components to come out of
its Moroccan manufacturing facility.  
"This is a very exciting milestone for us as we start to see our
operation in Morocco take form," said Hugo Brouillard, General
Manager, Bombardier Aerospace, Morocco. "With 18 new local employees
fully engaged and trained in the Bombardier manufacturing process and
philosophy, this is the first step towards a long future of quality
component manufacturing at another world-class Bombardier facility."  
Following the initial announcement in November 2011 of Bombardier's
intention to build a manufacturing facility in Morocco, the Company
has extended its timeline for construction of the new facility as the
manufacturing plan evolves. In order to maintain the timeline for
production Bombardier has set up operations in a transitional
facility located at the Mohammed V International Airport in Nouaceur
in the Greater Casablanca region, near its future permanent facility. 
The Bombardier Aerospace transitional manufacturing facility in
Morocco is currently producing simple structures including flight
controls for the CRJ Series aircraft. By year-end, the facility is
expected to employ approximately 100 fully trained aircraft
