Largest order yet for MSB’s crystal, china and flatware inserts


Associated Air Center (AAC) of Dallas, Texas, USA, has made the largest single order for MSB Design’s bespoke crystal, china and flatware (CCF) inserts. MSB is to deliver more than 100 of the individually created protective storage inserts to the completion center by August 2015. This is the first time AAC has worked with MSB.

MSB’s design department is working with AAC’s completion team to establish the exact requirements for the project – a green Boeing wide-body completion. It will then fall to the technical team to create the specifications for each piece. The inserts will be used to store dinnerware, glasses and stemware.

“We have strong relationships with a number of OEMs but recognize that completion centers often design and specify the interior cabin requirements,” said Shannon Gill, business development director at MSB.

“We have worked hard in the last 18 months to increase our footprint in this sector and the AAC order is the first of a number of a similar size and larger that we are finalizing.”

The additional business has resulted in MSB expanding its precision engineering division with the addition of two more full-time technicians.

“We are pleased to be working with MSB as they reflect the highest quality, innovation and attention to detail,” said Victor James, strategic sourcing lead at AAC.

MSB says each of its inserts is made of a lightweight, but strong, precision-cut high-density foam that has been fully certified for aviation use. The foam is cut to match the contours, surface and shape of the fragile items, in addition to the exact dimensions of the cabinets and drawers where the objects will be stowed.
