Following the opening of a facility in Charleston, USA in early 2018, Diehl Aviation has already expanded its range of services at the site. The first activity to be expanded at the South Carolina site is the warehousing and kitting for cabin lighting products, supporting the delivery process of these shipsets from manufacturing sites in Germany to Boeing’s Interiors Responsibility Center (IRC) and final assembly line facilities in Charleston. This investment complements the same service that Diehl has been offering out of its facility in the Seattle area to the Boeing IRC in Everett, Washington, since February 2011.
Diehl’s new service investment includes just-in-time deliveries and support for Diehl products at Boeing’s final assembly line on-site. Diehl Aviation supplies Boeing with cabin interiors lighting products for most commercial aircraft programmes, as well as cabin lining packages and supporting sub-structures for the 787-10 Dreamliner.
