Daher expands Mexican footprint

Daher has expanded its Mexican presence by inaugurating its newest logistics and industrial facility in Querétaro. The new 3,200 sq m building will supply Airbus Helicopters’ nearby production centre.

The scope of Daher’s operations at Querétaro includes forecasting and procurement of parts and chemicals required for the A320 door production; management of inbound material shipped by Airbus Helicopters in Germany to Mexico; customs clearance; along with inspection and warehousing.

After the material is accepted in Daher’s Querétaro facility, the company performs on-site pre-cutting of aluminium plates used in the doors, then delivers all door components to Airbus Helicopters for production. The process is completed by Daher’s reception of the finished doors from Airbus Helicopters; followed by their packaging and shipment to A320 final assembly lines.

Nicolas Orance, Senior Vice President of Daher’s Aerospace and Defence Business unit said that the Querétaro facility is aligned with Daher’s strategy of placing resources in close proximity to its customers, and ensuring flexibility in the range of services offered.
