ECS Group strengthens African presence with acquisition of EFIS MAROC

ECS Group has acquired Morocco’s leading GSA, EFIS MAROC, gaining a strong air cargo market presence in Africa.

The acquisition agreement marks the beginning of a seamless transition and the implementation of digital enhancements for the benefit of EFIS MAROC and its clientele.

EFIS MAROC is strategically positioned at Casablanca Mohammed V Airport (CMN), provides extensive commercial coverage for the country's major cargo gateways, including Marrakesh Menara Airport (RAK), Agadir Al Massira Airport (AGA), and Tangier Ibn Battuta Airport (TNG).

"EFIS MAROC has emerged as the market leader in commercial air cargo services, uniquely positioned as the region's sole GSA with substantial air freight experience and a loyal client base," affirms Adrien Thominet, executive chairman of ECS Group. "Morocco's strategic location holds the potential to become a key African Hub, aligning with ECS Group's established air cargo hubs in East and South Africa."

Pierre Fougerouse, founder of EFIS MAROC, said: "Our journey began with ECS Group's support in 2001, and after becoming self-owned in 2003, merging into ECS Group now feels like a fitting evolution of our partnership. I am also pleased to welcome Bouazza El Hantiti as Managing Director, bringing valuable experience from North Africa and Europe to enhance network synergies between Morocco and ECS Group's European representations."
