The relative size of these companies has made them flexible problem solvers, able to create new solutions to meet the needs of customers. The design, production, and servicing of aircraft interiors and interior products is a growing part of the sector that offers real potential for international clients and investors.
Not surprisingly, much of New Zealand’s capability in this area has evolved from the country’s considerable expertise in the marine industry. New Zealand’s use of advanced technology in the fields of design and composite materials has led to some of the world’s most luxurious superyachts being designed, built and refurbished by New Zealand companies.
This combination of marine and aerospace expertise allows New Zealand’s aviation interior companies to offer a range of innovative products and design solutions. New Zealand companies have a focus on quality and safety, as well as a strong commitment to meeting customer requirements on time.
Through Altitude, New Zealand can provide turnkey fit out and refit solutions for jet aircraft. Oceania, Helipro and Helicopters NZ have similar capabilities in the rotary wing sector. Other companies such as Flight Interiors, National Interiors and JMI Aerospace have significant skills and experience with interiors, fabrics, seating and other non-flight-critical components. Carpets, monuments, sidewall panels and hood linings are also supplied from New Zealand.
The flexibility of New Zealand manufacturers and their ability to carry out short production runs means they can easily offer part or full solutions for aircraft interior projects.
