Maintenance Facility for Moroccan Military – One year on

The newly built facility FAR Workshop Facility was officially opened as Centre de Compétence Matériels Roulants (CCMR) in October 2012. Maintenance began on military staff cars followed by two separate refurbishment programs on Toyota Land Cruiser 4x4s and Oshkosh Tank Transporters. Training of Military Personnel has been at the forefront with Lodi engineers taking the lead on skills transfer at shop floor and management level. CCMR was awarded ISO 9001/2008 certification in October this year - an award that contributed to the most successful year in Lodi's history. 

There are many more challenges which lie ahead with the Moroccan project, but Lodi have ensured that the Management and Technical staff installed are of high quality and well equipped to carry the project forward.
