Earlier this year, Boeing made a huge announcement that rocked a few boats n the aviation industry. Boeing will expand their stock by beginning to produce aircraft seats of all kinds. Boeing is teaming up with the mega-company, Adient Aerospace in order to ensure that their seats are up to the strict industry standards. Because these two companies are pairing up the public can expect quicker service and a superior product. Aerospace has had a hard time perfecting the airline seat. Many complaints have been filed and the production of seats is long, slow and costly.
There have been many instances where the production of entire fleets of aircraft has been held up due to the seats either being faulty or not ready on time. There were also some rumors among professionals that upper management was putting key aircraft components importance, this could be items like the seats, cabin walls or lights, on the back end of production. By putting less importance on these parts, it slows down the whole building process and creates inferior products for the consumer.
Adient is a sister company of the Johnson Control Group, which handles automotive seat configurations. When Boeing decided to collaborate with Adient they brought in a whole new expertise for these key components.
The main factory for the new aircraft seats will be located in Kaiserslautern, Germany, where a lot of its subsidiaries are already headquartered. This means that all production will take place right beside one another, making the transition seamless.
