AIM Altitude’s new UK facility takes shape


January 20, 2016 – The latest aerial photographs of the construction and fit-out of AIM Altitude’s new facilities at Bournemouth Airport indicate that major progress has been made on the project. The factory is watertight, with the roof and cladding having been finished some time ago. Inside, according to AIM Altitude, the factory floors have now been laid, as have the utilities and drainage.

Dave Poole, HS&E and facilities manager at AIM Cabin Interiors, said, “It is very exciting to see the building works all coming together so quickly now. Consolidating all our cabin interiors teams under one roof in purpose-built facilities is a huge step forward for the company.”

The 168,000 square-foot facility represents a “significant investment” by AIM Altitude and will also provide 30% additional capacity for the design, engineering and manufacture of aircraft cabin interiors, helping the company meet the growing demand for premium bars and monuments. Testing capabilities will also be expanded to support increasing market and regulatory requirements.

A dedicated customer zone will also be created for existing and prospective customers to view full-size interior mock-ups and develop the customized specifications vital for delivering differentiation in today’s premium cabin areas.

AIM Altitude’s new facility is due to be fully operational by late 2016.
