New facility for AIM Aviation in Bournemouth

AIM Aviation is making a significant investment in facilities at its Bournemouth production site. The designer and manufacturer of aerospace cabin interior products is set to consolidate its numerous Bournemouth-based premises into one purpose built, 16,000 square metre, facility on the Aviation Business Park at Bournemouth Airport.

This progression is part of an overall strategy to provide AIM Aviation with the best possible facilities for all cabin interior requirements and sufficient capacity to meet with the company's own plans for growth and that of the commercial aviation market. Indeed, work is nearing completion at AIM Aviation's Byfleet site in Surrey, where a major new factory is being built to add capacity to the Galleys Division. AIM Aviation has also recently increased its testing facilities by 70% and invested in a new state-of-the-art panel press at its Composites Division in Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire.

The new facility at Bournemouth will provide AIM Aviation's Cabin Interiors Division with 30% additional capacity, to meet expanding demand for its premium bars and monuments. The facility will incorporate a Customer Zone, allowing the viewing of mock-up interiors and styling options for existing and prospective customers. The office areas will be configured to provide flexible project working and the manufacturing space will be established with LEAN principles at its heart. A dedicated test facility will complete the capability on offer.

Colin Thornton, Managing Director of the Cabin Interiors Division, comments “Having the whole team under one roof will greatly enhance our ability to meet customers' demand for reduced time-to-market and best value. In addition, this exciting project will allow AIM Aviation to have a modern facility in keeping with the high quality of product it supplies.”

Works are schedule to commence in May 2014, becoming operational in June 2015.
