Company – TRONICO‘s plant in Morocco

Since 2004, TRONICO has been offering a range of services from its Moroccan plant to world-leading players of the industry (aerospace, energy, biotechnology…). Since then TRONICO has been working relentlessly to consolidate the development and the high reputation of its site in Morocco.

Partners who select TRONICO thrive from numerous advantages offered by our Moroccan plant. 300 highly skilled and experienced collaborators work in sync to offer the best services available, thanks to high-end logistics infrastructure, a favourable free-trade agreement, and optimum geographical reach that Morocco provides.

In response to the amazing potential growth of each market it addresses, TRONICO is continuously investing in its Moroccan location to widen its capabilities in build-to-spec and build-to-print (hiring new personnel with specific technical skills, Nadcap accreditation, heavy investments, increased production area …).

TRONICO’s site at Morroco has established a local aerospace-qualified supply chain.

Finally, TRONICO completed its skill set and know-how in Morocco by creating a dedicated R&D center, in addition to the two already established in France.
