Northern Ireland firms poised to display airline seating expertise

By Margaret Canning

Two Northern Ireland firms have joined with companies in England to produce a one-off aeroplane seat.

Seat cover manufacturer Bradfor from Rostrevor and plastic injection moulding company IPC in Carrickfergus joined Tangerine in London and Magnesium Elektron in Manchester to create Poise.

While the seat will never be manufactured, it was crafted in eight weeks to demonstrate the advantages of a ready-made supply chain in aviation.

It will be on display at the Invest NI stand at next month's Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg.
