Queretaro closes investments for US$128 million in France

QUERETARO - The governor of Queretaro, Mauricio Kuri Gonzalez, informed that during the days of activities at the Paris Air Show, six investment announcements were made for the state, representing US$128 million and the generation of 1,950 new jobs.

The state governor explained that part of the confidence that company executives have in the state is related to the labor force offered.

He indicated that the human talent is in constant training, in addition to the flexibility in the educational programs, which are in line with the needs of the organizations.

Together with the head of the Secretariat of Sustainable Development (Sedesu), Marco Antonio Del Prete Tercero, Kuri Gonzalez said that during his working tour in France he was able to learn about the current demands of the aeronautical industry and success stories of Queretaro professionals who occupy management positions in companies in the sector.

He affirmed that his administration will continue to focus on training, talent development and talent retention.

The Secretary of Sustainable Development explained that there are around 80 companies and support units in the aeronautical sector, which are grouped into assemblers, suppliers, maintenance workshops, general services, research centers and academic institutions, which together generate more than 10,000 jobs.

He recalled that the new investment announcements consider US$93 million and 800 jobs with Safran's seventh plant in Queretaro and the expansion of two more; the expansion of Delastek's operations, which will triple its production capacity in aircraft cockpits and instrument panels.

Similarly, he said, they contemplate a 30% increase in production capacity and number of jobs at ITP Aero; the expansion of General Electric Aerospace (GE) in collaboration with the Aeronautical University of Queretaro (UNAQ), the doubling of Albany International's facilities; as well as the operational increase through new production packages at Airbus.
