Making an entrance into Morocco, Pratt & Whitney has launched a new affiliate rightfully named Pratt & Whitney Maroc (PWM).

PWM is due to be set up in the Moroccan city of Casablanca for the assistance of manufacturing detailed static and structure machine parts for various types of Pratt & Whitney’s popular engine models.

This new venture for the engine manufacturer will prove to be cost-effective and improve competitiveness whilst taking advantage of Morocco’s growing hub of aerospace businesses as well as the already available talent.

Their new affiliate will have a new efficient 130,000-square-foot greenfield facility built with construction set to begin in the fourth quarter of 2023 and complete for a successful launch in 2025. This facility will also look to create 200 jobs by 2030 for the growing Moroccan economy.

President of Pratt & Whitney Canada, Maria Della Posta, says, “Morocco offers many benefits for aerospace manufacturing. The growing aerospace community in Casablanca ensures a highly valuable talent pool, a positive economic environment, and the support from Morocco’s government.”
