Admin | 20.01.2012

This year, the Aerospace Industry is expected to grow 14% in its exports with the installation of 12 manufacturing companies planned for 2012, said Carlos Bello, director of the “Mexican Federation of the Aerospace Industry (Femia)”.

Bello explained that in 2011, 4.400 million dollars were exported, in other words, 25% over the number in 2010.

The number expected for this year is of 5,100 million dollars, with a Direct Foreign Investment (IED) of 1,300 million dollars.

He also indicated that during 2012, 12 projects of manufacturing companies such as Bombardier, Safran and Eurocopter, will move forward and materialize in Sonora, Queretaro, Chihuahua and Baja California.

The plans of these companies for Mexico will have an impact on the results that expected for 2012, which the director of Femia looms as a good year for this industry.

The executive emphasized that it will soon be announced the National Strategic Program of the Aerospace Industry, which defines the sector’s growth strategies for the next 10 years.

One of them, he said, is the development of local supply that currently stands around 6%.
