AeroChamp Aviation, an aircraft interior products and services company based in the Middle East and Asia, is collaborating with ANH Structure, a South Korean company, to extend its structural design and manufacturing capabilities to the aviation industry in the Middle East and South Asia region.
“AeroChamp, on the basis of its domain expertise in aircraft interiors, has been supporting airlines and business jet operators to optimise their maintenance and refurbishment costs of cabins, galleys and lavs, and this collaboration with ANH will help us extend our capabilities”, said Dr Praveen Srivastava, founder and CEO of AeroChamp.
Dr Praveen Srivastava is an aircraft interiors specialist in the Indian subcontinent, with experience at companies including Omnavia Interiors, Indamer Aviation, Epsilon Aerospace and Air Works Group, and has sold large numbers of aircraft seats over the past two decades. Indeed he believes that ANH Structure, which he believes the collaboration between AeroChamp and ANH Structure can manufacture aircraft passenger seats in India in the near future.
“Airlines from the Middle East and India have placed large orders for both narrow body and wide body aircraft”, commented Hyonsu Ahn, CEO of ANH Structure. “Most airlines refurbish and reconfigure the cabin in 5-7 years and need parts support. Our company has developed design and manufacturing capabilities for airline cabin interiors and can serve their requirement through engineering services and associated kits. Under this new collaboration with AeroChamp, we shall explore the possibilities of manufacturing aircraft cabin parts and lightweight passenger seats in India.”
