Starling Aerospace has made further improvements to its facilities increasing its capabilities for aircraft interiors. This includes investment into the latest machinery, new departments and the expansion of its work force.
To match the growth of the business Starling Aerospace launched a recruitment drive at the beginning of the year for its in-house Paint Shop, Composite Department and dedicated Cut and Sew Shop. The sewing team has now doubled in capacity to enable the busy department to provide an even quicker turnaround for soft furnishings for the aircraft cabin and service airlines and repair stations.
On the shop floor a metal vertical machining centre has been installed to pair with Starling Aerospace’s Hurco CNC capabilities and to support the VIP seat production line. As part of its ongoing refurbishment the business also has a new Research and Development Room and a Tedlar Room.
To improve its manufacturing efficiencies Starling Aerospace has invested into Material Requirements Planning (MRP) production control software. The team received in-depth training from MIE Solutions UK Ltd, one of the country’s leading providers of MRP. This new software will contribute towards having a paperless system.
Starling Aerospace is now looking forward to exhibiting at Aircraft Interiors Middle East (AIME), in Dubai, on 25th and 26th February 2020 and promoting its new capabilities, manufacturing efficiencies and products for aircraft interiors.
