6000 jobs up for grabs in Renault-Nissan Alliance's €600 million investment

The Renault-Nissan Alliance is continuing to spread its global tyre tracks as it signs an agreement for manufacturing facilities in Morocco. The Franco-Japanese Alliance already has an assembly plant in Rosslyn, South Africa, among other places, and this new agreement signals its intention to increase sales and output dramatically in the next few years. Renault will start building the complex in February 2008.

Tangier will be the location of the manufacturing site, which has the capacity to produce 400,000 vehicles per annum and provide 6,000 direct jobs and 30,000 indirect jobs. A number of vehicle derivatives from Logan's B0 Platform and Nissan's LCVs will be manufactured through the facility.
