Soisa Aircraft Interiors, a provider of cabin upholstery and assembly services, has expanded its facility in the Dubai South area in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The revamped facility has quadrupled in size, featuring specialised production lines with dedicated units for dress cover lamination, curtains and cutting areas.
A large warehouse area has also been incorporated, designed to accommodate both raw materials and finished goods for efficient management. The announcement follows what the company calls a successful first year for its operations in Dubai, after moving to the facility in March 2023.
Soisa currently provides upholstery and assembly services for more than 120 airlines, and partners with all major seat OEMs from its base in Chihuahua, Mexico. Soisa says the Dubai facility extension will enable it to “dramatically increase” its production capacity and better serve clients in the region, such as Etihad, Emirates, FlyDubai, Royal Brunei, Singapore Airlines, and Safran Cabin in Thailand, among others.
“We are committed to enhancing the nearshoring experience for our clients around the world,” said Jacobo Mesta, CEO of Soisa,. “By moving to the heart of Dubai South, an emerging hub of aviation, Soisa aims to capitalise on its state-of-the-art facility by offering cutting-edge services in dress covers and lamination and speeding our clients’ products to market.”
The improved near-shoring capabilities are intended to give Soisa’s customers in the region with improved logistics and cost efficiencies, minimal lead times for delivering final products, and reduced turn-around times.
The products include cabin upholstery such as dress covers, cushions, curtains, carpets, insulation panels, acoustic panels, and VIP seats. Its services also include hydrographic printing and repairs of interior parts for airlines and OEMs in the Middle East, North Africa, India, Europe and Asia.
