Casablanca—TDM Aerospace’s leadership team decided to suspend its factory operations in Midparc Casablanca Free Zone in the light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic on March 16, 2020. The Kingdom of Morocco issued a nationwide state of emergency four days later, effectively shutting down most businesses and non-essential services until April 20th. Prior to the shutdown, TDM’s Health and Safety staff issued guidelines for prevention and avoidance of exposure to the virus to all team members.
Fortunately for TDM, the company is well ahead of plan in its qualification project with Boeing and management expects no impact in the immediate to short term. Work continues remotely in preparation for Boeing and NADCAP process audits later in the year.
TDM extends its best wishes to our industry, our partners, and to the global community for health and well-being during this challenging time. Our aim is to come back stronger than ever when the crisis passes.
TDM’s leadership team will update status as the situation unfolds.
