    Eurocopter will create a new industrial facility in Querétaro, Mexico to support its global production network, further reinforcing the company’s manufacturing capabilities while also augmenting its presence in the Latin American marketplace.

    This selection results from a comprehensive study to determine the optimum location for this latest production facility in Eurocopter’s international industrial network, with the choice based on Querétaro’s economic, geographic, educational and strategic position.

    Eurocopter has been present in Mexico for some 30 years, with its activities managed by the company’s Eurocopter de Mexico S.A. de C.V. subsidiary. Based at Mexico City International Airport and staffed by nearly 200 employees, Eurocopter de Mexico provides services for helicopters located in the region, along with sales and marketing support.

    In addition to its Mexican market responsibilities, the company’s coverage area also includes Central America, northern South America and the Caribbean.

    The capabilities of Eurocopter de Mexico include aircraft assembly, maintenance and painting, along with professional training for helicopter pilots and technicians through partnership agreements with educational institutions such as the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN), Mexico’s National Technical Professional School (CONALEP), the country’s Pilot Training Academy and Heliescuela.

    Any idea why India was not chosen? The deal of 197 helicopters could not have been use as a leverage to get them here?
