Dornier Seawings contracts McGreevy Engineering

Amphibious aircraft manufacturer, Dornier Seawings, has contracted precision engineering company McGreevy Engineering to machine parts for their iconic advanced amphibious aircraft, the Dornier Seastar.

Dornier rose to prominence in the 1920s and 1930s as a manufacturer of large, all metal flying boats. The Seastar aircraft, designed in Germany, is engineered to operate from runway and water surfaces allowing for short field take-off and landing capabilities.

McGreevy Engineering, based in Ballygowan, Northern Ireland, specialises in precision machined components, 5-axis milling and multi axis turn milling. The company met initially with Dornier Seawings at the Farnborough Airshow in July 2018 and has gained a number of contracts subsequently.

Aaron McGreevy, Managing Director of McGreevy Engineering commented, "McGreevy Engineering is very pleased to be working with Dornier Seawings. Given our recent investment to diversify our capabilities this is great news indeed.

"The Dornier brand has a heritage of a pioneering spirit; like many Northern Ireland companies it is built on the rich experience of engineering expertise, in this case, in aviation.

The Dornier family is highly respected given their 100 years of aircraft production and we hope to continue to build on this relationship given our many years of experience in engineering."

The Seastar is a multi-purpose aircraft covering a wide operational range of VIP transport, commercial, government/special and corporate missions.

Paul Larkin of Dornier Seawings said; "Dornier Seawings is delighted to be working with McGreevy Engineering, a second generation engineering family. The Seastar is superior in every important measure – speed, range, safety, cabin size and lower maintenance costs. It is designed in Germany and strictly adheres to Dornier's high quality standards. It is therefore significant that we partner with like-minded companies that understand our ethos, requirement for quality and on time delivery needs as well as add value."
