After a three year hiatus, Recaro Aircraft Seating hosted its annual Global Supplier Conference at their headquarters in Schwaebisch Hall, Germany.

‘Fit For Growth’ was the main theme of the conference and nearly 150 participants, from across the globe, attended the conference to learn about the latest insights and developments in the aircraft seating market.  Discussions were held  to offer guidance for supplier expectations and why this is relevant for the 2024 outlook and beyond.

During the conference, five awards – Sustainability, Newcomer, Production Material, Non-Production Material, and Customer Service – were given to suppliers who have shown exemplary performance over the past year. Each of these award categories showcases the importance of partnership, reliability, and commitment within the aviation industry.

The Sustainability award was given to allsafe GmbH & Co. KG for their ‘sustainable and focused mindset’ while LIKUM GmbH, from Germany, got the Newcomer Award for its ‘strong commitment and willingness to invest’ into business. For their ‘proactive and supportive manner’, Suzhou Haoxin Precision Technology Co.,Ltd. was awarded the Production Material Award.

In the Non-Production Material category, Seabridge Transport GmbH was selected due to their ”excellent customer orientation’. And, for their reliable performance and flexibility Aldinger GmbH & Co. KG received the Customer Service Award. Finalists in this category were Artex Latvia SIA from Latvia and Mesag System AG from Switzerland.

Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO of Reacaro Aircraft Seating said: “Fit for growth emphasizes the joint way forward we’ll pursue with our suppliers. After three years, pandemic gears have switched – it’s all about driving for a successful future – as collaborating partners who are focused on one goal – a profitable and sustainable market position, that will enable us to manage our planned double digit growth in the upcoming years.”
