Queretaro authorities lure Safran to build its eighth plant in the state
As Safran is about to complete the installation of its seventh plant in Querétaro, state authorities are carrying out efforts to attract an eighth investment project from the French aerospace company.
This was announced in recent days by Governor Francisco Dominguez Servién to local media. “They are finishing the seventh and we are competing for an eighth Safran plant,” he said as reported by El Economista.
“It is still a confidential project, so it is not possible to give more details,” added the head of the Secretariat of Sustainable Development (Sedesu), Marco Antonio Del Prete Tercero.
“I cannot talk much, as you know all projects are confidential, but we continue working and I’ll be happy to let you know (when it is completed), but I cannot talk much,” said the official.
In February 2018, the Safran-Albany plant was launched in Querétaro, representing the sixth investment project of the French firm in the state.
During the inauguration of the sixth plant, a seventh project was announced, consisting of an investment of US$ 25 million and the opening of 150 jobs positions.
The seventh plant will focus on producing auxiliary structures for the LEAP (Leading Edge Aviation Propulsion) engine.
