Moroccan industrial development

Agreement for innovation

Through this agreement signed by both companies, the new ITCErum Packaging will initially focus its efforts on the Moroccan market, manufacturing ITC Packaging’s portfolio of home and food products in the Erum Group’s factory in Tangier. This strategy will allow us to be closer to customers, optimize production and improve logistics management, reducing transportation costs, and therefore, emissions. The union of both companies will also allow the development of new, more innovative and sustainable packaging concepts, as well as joint circular economy projects in the region.

ITCErum Packaging represents a union of synergies to improve competitiveness

During the signing ceremony, Juan Manuel Erum, CEO of the ERUM Group, reviewed the presence of the corporation in the Moroccan country, a journey that began in 2003, and was consolidated in 2007, with the creation of Erum Maroc. From that moment on, the company expanded its activity to new products, entering the field of automotive component manufacturing through Novaerum Automotive. As a result of this expansion, the Erum Group expands its facilities in the TAC (Tanger Automotive City) free zone, with the incorporation of more production equipment, technology and storage space. Today, more than 700 workers at Erum Maroc, and more than 400 at Novaerum, work for the Erum Group in Morocco, to which the new ITCErum Packaging is now added.
