The event was attended by Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, along with other key government, local, and Eurocopter officials.

Eurocopter expanded its global industrial footprint and enhanced its presence in Mexico with the recent inauguration of a new manufacturing center of excellence, which is to produce high-technology aircraft structural metallic components. Located at the Aerotech Industrial Park adjacent to Querétaro Intercontinental Airport, this 12,000-m² facility will be the single-source production site for structures used in jetliner doors that the company manufactures for Airbus, along with tail booms to equip Eurocopter Ecureuil helicopters. Construction of the Querétaro manufacturing center began in early 2012, followed by the hiring and training of personnel during the year. It will create approximately 200 specialized jobs, enabling the plant to generate 200,000 production hours annually during its initial phase of activity.
