Cenco U.S. (Safran) welcomes the Belgian Ambassador to the U.S.
On Monday October 19th, Ambassador Johan Verbeke was welcomed by Mr. Jerome Morhet, the CEO & President of Cenco U.S., at their offices in New Brighton, Minnesota. Ambassador Verbeke arrived with a delegation of trade and investment representatives interested in understanding Cenco's business and the impact a Belgian-owned company has on the aero-engine testing market. The discussion centered around how Belgium can support the efforts of Cenco and how the successful Cenco business model can be replicated in other Belgian companies seeking to have businesses in the US.
"We were honored to have Ambassador Verbeke visit our offices and engage in a lively and productive dialogue", Morhet commented about the visit. As a part of Techspace Aero, Cenco represents one of two businesses located in the US, the other located in Florida.
