A new managing director has just been named at the head of Alstom Morocco.

Present in Morocco for nearly a century, Alstom is a long-standing partner in the development of mobility in the country. With more than 650 employees, Alstom has carried out several key projects, including the delivery of 190 Citadis X02 trams to the cities of Rabat (66 trams) and Casablanca (124 trams), 12 Avelia Euroduplex trains for the high-speed line which connects Tangier to Casablanca and 77 Prima locomotives providing the best solutions for freight, passenger and mixed transport services.
Thanks to the new factory in Fez, Alstom has been able to increase the production of cables for railway applications, electrical boxes and on-board transformers which are supplied to its European factories and then mounted on trains exported around the world.
