Interior supplier Soisa has announced the expansion of the company’s manufacturing capabilities with the increase of production capacity at it’s base in Mexico and the addition of a Dubai facility.
Both locations are part of it’s ‘nearshoring’ strategy where production can take place nearest to the client’s hangars. For example, airlines such as FlyDubai, Emirates and Etihad are best served from the new location in the Al Maktoum Airport freezone, while clients based in North America are supplied from Chihuahua in Mexico.
The firm provides upholstery and assembly services for over 100 airlines worldwide and partners with seat OEMs from its base in Chihuahua, Mexico. Its expansion into Dubai will include a capacity of approximately ten shipsets per month and will serve clients in the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and Asia.
The firm claims that nearshoring, coupled with other operational efficiencies will result in cost reductions for its clients. Jacobo Mesta, CEO of Soisa, said: “By nearshoring services for worldwide suppliers and OEMs, we anticipate that, on average, we will be able to offer a 40% cost reduction of their operation compared to outsourcing different elements to additional suppliers.”
He added: “We have invested in our people, and we have the skilled workforce to provide a competitive solution to the market”.
