Cabin Solutions
Facility expansion

In August, HAECO Cabin Solutions announced its plan to expand its design engineering and interiors product manufacturing capacity in a new, 24,060 square-metre facility in High Point, North Carolina. The building is in close proximity to HAECO Americas’ headquarters in Greensboro and will provide a large, single location for non-seat interiors production work.

 

HAECO is experiencing increased demand for the company’s engineering capabilities, such as airline fleet retrofit programmes, as well as interiors products such as the company’s new Vector-Y™ passenger seats and FeatherWeight™ galleys and lavatories. Up to 400 employees are expected to work at the new facility, including a mix of new hires and transfers from other existing HAECO locations. The company will continue to operate its dedicated seat engineering and manufacturing facility in nearby Wallburg, North Carolina. The new facility is expected to begin operations in the first quarter of 2016.
