ST Aerospace Unveils New VIP Aircraft Interiors Centre in Singapore

Feb. 11, 2016

Singapore, 11 February 2016 – ST Aerospace today opened its new VIP aircraft interiors centre at the Seletar Aerospace Park in Singapore. With this new facility, ST Aerospace will bring its full suite of VIP luxury cabin interior design, engineering, installation and maintenance services to the region, serving customers from across Asia Pacific and the Middle East.

With a core team comprising highly skilled engineers and craftsmen, ST Aerospace’s newly added Singapore VIP aircraft interiors centre will design, upholster and fabricate cabin interiors, as well as provide maintenance for narrow-body VIP aircraft, including the Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) and Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ), while conceptual design and certification continue to be supported by its San Antonio VIP interiors team.

This facility is ST Aerospace’s second of its kind – the first was established in 2011 at San Antonio, Texas. The Singapore facility leverages the experience and track record of the successful American facility. All engineers and craftsmen of ST Aerospace’s new VIP aircraft interiors business have received skills training at San Antonio, the birthplace of large aircraft VIP completions which has access to the skilled craftsmen and highly trained engineering talent pool in that region.

“ST Aerospace’s VIP aircraft interiors centre is an example of how local companies can move up the value chain by diversifying into high value-added design and engineering services,” said Mr Lim Kok Kiang, Assistant Managing Director of Singapore Economic Development Board. “This Centre adds vibrancy to our aerospace ecosystem, and enhances Singapore’s attractiveness as a hub from which premium aftermarket services
are offered to the region.”

“We see potential in reaching out to customers in this region for VIP aircraft interiors,” said Mr Lim Serh Ghee, President of ST Aerospace. “Besides increasing our geographical footprint to provide convenience to customers in this region, what is also exciting is the amount of skills transfer involved. New skills are imparted from our successful set-up in the US, to ensure we offer the same level of aesthetics, engineering and on-time delivery.

Going up the value chain, we believe this new capability in Singapore offers a complete suite of services that cover design, engineering and craftsmanship, enhancing the already strong aviation ecosystem here.”
