As agricultural and industrial province at a time, Berrechid is well positioned on the outskirts of Casablanca, not far from El Jadida and Marrakech. Its chief place owes its name to its founders, the Errachids, who settled there in the beginning of the 14th century and took control of commercial exchanges between the Kingdom's North and South. In early 1970s, Berrechid took further dimensions upon creation of an industrial zone stretching over hundreds of hectares, which has always shaped the city's look and contributed to its demographic and urban growth.
