CVG’s Global Expansion and Tangier’s Appeal
On Tuesday, Commercial Vehicle Group (CVG), an American company specializing in electrical systems and vehicle accessories, announced the opening of a cutting-edge manufacturing facility in Tangier, Morocco. Rich Tajer, President of Electrical Systems and Chief Commercial Officer at CVG, highlighted Morocco’s abundant technical talent and strategic location as key factors in this expansion, allowing CVG to better serve the growing electric systems market.
Initial Focus and Ambitious Expansion Plans
The newly established facility, spanning around 30,000 square feet initially, will concentrate on the production of electrical wire harnesses for the automotive industry. However, CVG’s ambitious plans include expanding its capacity to manufacture “hundreds of thousands” of wire harnesses annually for various sectors, such as agriculture and construction, by 2024.
Job Creation and Local Collaboration
CVG recognizes Tangier’s strategic importance, positioning it as a crucial hub in the company’s global network, while simultaneously contributing to the local Tangier economy. The initial phase of the project is expected to generate 250 jobs, with significant plans for future job expansion. CVG expressed gratitude to the Moroccan government and local authorities for their instrumental support in realizing this venture, emphasizing its commitment to global electrification business growth and its first substantial presence in Africa. Additionally, the Ohio-based company reiterated its dedication to providing practical solutions to complex design, engineering, and manufacturing challenges, while fostering positive change in the communities it serves.
CVG’s move to establish a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Tangier reflects the company’s commitment to global expansion and its growing presence in the electrification sector. This expansion not only highlights Morocco’s attractiveness as a destination for advanced manufacturing but also contributes to local job creation and economic development.
