MSB Ressources Globales, also known as MSB Global Resources, has moved into an additional facility located in Montreal’s Technoparc area. The facility is adjacent to Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport.
The engineering company, which is part of the international Sogeclair Aerospace group, has taken on the extra space due to growing demand for its services from an expanding client base.
MSB Ressources Globales supports OEMs, maintenance, refurbishment and completion centres by providing a wide range of specialised and general aerospace engineering services.
The new building has increased capacity for production of business aviation interior components. The new office complements the company’s existing sites in California, Indiana, Savannah and Washington.
An increase in the amount of components produced and supplied by MSB RG for the Bombardier Global family of aircraft contributed to the uptick in production.
“We have moved into our new offices to be closer to our principle customer here in Montreal. The aircraft are completed within a few miles of our new facility, so it is a major advantage to be in such close proximity. It makes communications much easier and improves operational efficiency to be near to their plant,” says Othmane Smires, senior director operations and sales for MSB RG.
A new R&D facility has also opened at the Longueuil, Montreal facility. A team of 25 engineers and technicians at the facility are focused on developing new products, mechanisms and components to expand the MSB portfolio to further enhance the passenger and crew experience in business aircraft.
New products launched this year include a retractable hand spray for the aircraft bathroom and a more durable draw slide mechanism for galleys. Another new product is a tablet holder that folds into the cabin credenza.
