CASABLANCA, Morocco—Cable technology manufacturer Nexans S.A. will open an Interface Maroc plant here in 2022 that will produce fiber optic cable accessories for FTTH (Fiber to the Home), 5G, data center and LAN (Local Area Network) applications.

The facility will feature 3,000 cubic meters of production workshop and employ between 250 and 300 people. The Nexans Group currently has five sites in Morocco.

By opening this plant, the Group will increase its production capacity, while expanding its product range and offering new services to better satisfy its customers: supply chain optimization services, component prewiring and cable connectorization services. The plant will serve the European and North African markets. 

"This investment enables us to pursue our development strategy in this high-growth region and to have a stronger local presence in the North West African market," says Julien Hueber, Executive Vice President of Nexans' Industry Solutions & Projects Business Group. "This new production unit illustrates the Group's desire to better serve its customers by improving our responsiveness, the quality of our products and by offering services with our telecom and datacom product range."
