Spatial doubles its production capacity


Spatial, a manufacturer of aviation training equipment, including crew trainers, is relocating to a larger facility in RAKEZ, the Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone in United Arab Emirates. The 12,775 m2 site is 73% larger than its previous location, also in RAKEZ, and the company intends to use the additional space to increase its production capacity by more than 50% and to serve its global customer base, which includes airlines such as Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines, Qantas and British Airways. The new facility will be fully operational by the end of Q1 2021.

“The transport of goods in and out of the facility has been made quick, easy and cost-effective; and the accommodating team at RAKEZ made our expansion decision an easier one,” said Marc Van den Broucque, managing director of Spatial. “With this expansion, we are well placed to satisfy the increase in demand for our products, which has persisted through the pandemic, as well as to cater for future expansion. We are optimistic to what the future holds for Spatial, and we are certain we are on track to hold a larger market share within the aviation training industry.”
