Eurocopter has unveiled plans for a new rotor-blade factory in Dugny, near Paris Le Bourget Airport, to open in 2014. When the new facility is up and running, the 800 employees at the existing blade production lines in neighboring La Courneuve will move to Dugny, where they will be joined by some research engineers who will relocate from EADS Innovation Works’ offices in Suresnes (west of Paris).
