Optical Fiber: Nexans Opens New Plant in Nouaceur

The Nexas Group inaugurated, Tuesday in Nouaceur, a new Telecom Systems Business Unit plant, which will produce fiber optic cable accessories for FTTH applications, 5G, Data center and local computer networks.

The opening ceremony of this site was chaired by minister of Industry, Trade and the Green and Digital Economy, Moulay Hafid Elalamy.

The factory, located in the industrial acceleration zone of Nouaceur, known as Midparc, is built over a surface area of 6,000 m², including 3,000 m² of production workshop, and will employ between 250 and 300 people by 2022.

This plant will enable the Group increase its production capacity, while expanding its product range, and offering new services for optimizing the supply chain, pre-wiring components and connection cables. It will serve the European market, as well as the North African one.

"This new investment in Morocco by industrial leader Nexans, in line with the European strategy for the rationalization of the supply chain, testifies to Morocco's competitiveness and the resilience of the national industrial sector in this context of crisis", Elalamy underlined on this occasion.

For his part, Julien Hueber, Executive Vice-president of the Business Group Industry Solutions & Projects of Nexans, said that this new production unit "allows us to pursue our development strategy in this high-growth region and to have a local presence in the North West African market".

This investment "shows the Group's desire to better serve its customers, by improving our responsiveness and the quality of our products, and by offering services with our range of telecom and datacom products", he said.
