MAC Interiors, an aircraft interior production and engineering company, has undertaken facility and capability expansions at its headquarters near Gatwick, UK. The expansion follows the company’s acquisition by Magnetic MRO, following which a modernisation, expansion and organizational update was commenced, in terms of both personnel and adding new capabilities.
New capabilities such as producing 3D printed aviation parts for quick turnaround projects have also been added, several seating overhaul projects executed, and MAC Interiors has also been working on expanding its facility by adding a new site for its operations, bringing the operation to 1,811 sq.m. The company says the additional space was vital for its growing team as well as its increasing amount of work and customers.
Separate zones have been created for machine shops, repair shops and soft trim and composites, and clean zones for assembly and inspection. Barcode scanning has also been introduced for operations across the shop-floor, as well as new stores in order to optimize the production flow between manufacturing, inspection and stores.
