Aircraft lighting specialist STG Aerospace has established an official presence in China with the launch of a wholly foreign-owned enterprise (WFOE), STG Aerospace (China), based in Shanghai. The company says the initiative is a reflection of the importance of China as a market.
STG Aerospace is based in the UK and also has a manufacturing facility in the USA. Its CAAC-, FAA- and EASA-approved product range includes: safTglo, a photoluminescent emergency floor path system currently installed on more than 9,000 aircraft; safTsign, a brand of photoluminescent emergency and informational signage developed for commercial fixed-wing and rotary aircraft; and liTeMood, a plug-and-play, programmable, LED mood lighting system designed for retrofitting on commercial aircraft cabins.
“We have been active in the Chinese market for the last decade and are committed to a long-term future in the country,” said Nigel Duncan, STG Aerospace’s chief executive. “This new subsidiary will not only help us to enhance the service we provide for our Chinese customers, but also enable us to involve local companies and local people in the delivery of innovative, research-based cabin lighting solutions that are not just the best in the marketplace, but the best, specifically, for our Chinese customers.”
