AIM Altitude has launched a review of its UK design and manufacturing operations with a view to consolidating galley manufacturing at its facilities in Bournemouth, Dorset, and Dafen, South Wales.
The company’s new facilities in Bournemouth were opened in December 2016, and the site at Dafen is well established in supplying galleys to the world’s major airlines and OEMs. The review process will assess the proposed redeployment, where possible, of employees currently based at the Byfleet facility, to join the teams at Bournemouth and Dafen and to establish a new engineering base close to Byfleet. Production support and logistics will be centered at Bournemouth.
AIM Altitude is committed to a long-term participation in the commercial aircraft galley market and is therefore taking the opportunity to create design and manufacturing facilities that offer the highest levels of quality, service and innovation for airline customers and OEM partners.
The review is expected to be completed during the second half of 2017.
