Jet Aviation Basel has signed an agreement with Basel Euroairport authorities to expand its aircraft interior completions production capacity. The expansion includes establishing an additional 3,700m² facility dedicated to finishing and integration activities, as well as increasing manufacturing capacity within its current cabinet shop.
The company is also investing in equipment including CNC machines to support cabinet building, and glue, spray and paint facilities to support finishing operations. The expansion is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2016.
“This production expansion builds upon our well-developed in-house capabilities and provides the added capacity required to continue delivering the highest quality products with the shortest lead times to our customers,” says Neil Snowdon, senior director of production at the Jet Aviation Basel completions center. “It is an exciting project that underscores our long-term commitment to meeting our customers’ requirements with in-house expertise.”
“The prospect of available and extremely suitable expansion space at Basel Euroairport was in line with our long-term growth objectives and opportune,” said Neil Boyle, senior vice president at the Basel completions center. “We are pleased to invest in this additional production capacity to uphold our tradition of executing all elements of a bespoke interior in-house, where we are better able to monitor and control the quality of production and craftsmanship.”
