Soisa Aircraft Interiors has announced the expansion of its facility in the Dubai South area of the UAE.
The revamped facility has quadrupled in size, and features specialised production lines with dedicated units for dress cover lamination, curtains and cutting areas. A sizable warehouse has also been incorporated, designed to accommodate both raw materials and finished goods for efficient management.
The announcement comes after a successful first year for the manufacturer in Dubai, after moving to the facility in March 2023.
Soisa currently provides upholstery and assembly services for more than 120 airlines worldwide and partners with major seat OEMs from its base in Chihuahua, Mexico. The new Dubai facility extension will enable Soisa to dramatically increase its production capacity, thereby catering to a wider array of client needs, including major airlines and aircraft manufacturers.
“We are committed to enhancing the nearshoring experience for our clients around the world,” said Jacobo Mesta, CEO of Soisa. “By moving to the heart of Dubai South, an emerging hub of aviation, Soisa aims to capitalise on its state-of-the-art facility by offering cutting-edge services in dress covers and lamination and speeding our clients’ products to market.”
“Ensuring the fulfilment of our customers’ operational requirements is of utmost importance to us,” Mesta continued. “We take immense pride in our ability to provide the aircraft interiors market with adaptable and forward-thinking solutions, including our valued clients such as industry leaders Etihad, Emirates and FlyDubai.”
Soisa said the improved nearshoring capabilities will directly benefit its customers with improved logistics, minimal lead times for delivering final products, reduced turnaround times and cost efficiencies.
The company specialises in cabin upholstery, offering dress covers, cushions, curtains, carpets, insulation panels, acoustic panels and VIP seats. Its services also include hydrographic printing and repairs of interior parts for airlines and OEMs in the Middle East, North Africa, India, Europe and Asia.
Soisa’s clientele encompasses airlines including Etihad, Emirates, FlyDubai, Royal Brunei and Singapore Airlines, in addition to Safran Cabin in Thailand, among numerous other partners.
