Bombardier is celebrating the 15th anniversary of its Querétaro, Mexico aerospace manufacturing facility, which recently completed the 100th rear fuselage for the company’s flagship Global 7500. Established in 2006, the location manufactures key structural components for Bombardier business jets, including the rear fuselage for the Global family. It also makes components and complex systems for the Challenger 350 and 650.
“Bombardier has played a significant role in the development and growth of Mexico’s aerospace industry,” said Bombardier executive v-p of operations and operational excellence Paul Sislian. In addition to recognizing the 1,200 employees at the Querétaro facility, he highlighted organizations that have supported the aerospace industry in Mexico, including the Aeronautical University in Querétaro, the Mexican Federation of Aerospace Industries, and the Aerocluster Querétaro.
Besides supporting the Mexican aerospace industry, Bombardier and its Querétaro employees are committed to the local community. In fact, the company has an alliance with the Sierra Gorda World Biosphere Reserve, one of Mexico’s most important protected natural environments. Additionally, Bombardier funds social projects run by employee-led group Causa Querétaro.
