Who are we ?

TDM Aerospace, SARL (TDM) is an airplane parts manufacturer established in Morocco by veteran aerospace entrepreneurs. From an audacious idea conceived on a park bench in South Carolina, TDM was born in Casablanca in March 2018 and, in an astonishingly short period, concluded a Long-­Term Agreement (LTA) with Boeing—the first of its kind for a company with no employees, no building, and no equipment. The time span from concept to contract was 21 MONTHS.

Through TDM, H2E recognized the opportunity to be at the leading edge of an aerospace industry transformation in Morocco over the next 10 to 20 years. So, they enlisted Moroccan investors and relocated with their young families to Casablanca in early 2018. Boeing validated the concept and rewarded TDM’s founders, investors, and the Kingdom with a multi­‐year contract, thereby setting in motion the next stage of Morocco’s aerospace industry development.
