Seat cover manufacturer Soisa Aircraft Interiors has announced the expansion of its facility in the Dubai South airport freezone area in the United Arab Emirates.
The revamped facility is four times as large as the original site, featuring production lines with dedicated units for dress cover lamination, curtains and cutting areas.
A sizable warehouse has also been incorporated, designed to accommodate both raw materials and finished goods.
The announcement comes after a successful first year for the manufacturer in Dubai, after moving to the facility in March 2023.
Soisa currently provides upholstery and assembly services for around 120 airlines worldwide and partners with all major seat OEMs from its base in Chihuahua, Mexico. The new Dubai facility extension will enable the firm to dramatically increase its production capacity, thereby catering to a wider array of client needs, including major airlines and aircraft manufacturers.
Jacobo Mesta, CEO of Soisa, said: “We are committed to enhancing the nearshoring experience for our clients around the world. By moving to the heart of Dubai South, an emerging hub of aviation, Soisa aims to capitalise on its state-of-the-art facility by offering cutting-edge services in dress covers and lamination and speeding our clients’ products to market.
“Ensuring the fulfilment of our customers’ operational requirements is of utmost importance to us.
