Boeing collaborates with automotive seating company

A new joint venture has been formed by Boeing and Adient, an automotive seating specialist, to develop and make aircraft seats. Adient Aerospace will offer seats for installation on new and retrofit projects, on aircraft made by Boeing and other manufacturers.

“Seats have been a persistent challenge for our customers, the industry and Boeing, and we are taking action to help address constraints in the market,” said Kevin Schemm, senior vice president of supply chain management, finance and business operations and CFO for Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

“Adient Aerospace will leverage Boeing’s industry leadership and deep understanding of customer needs and technical requirements, to provide a superior seating product for airlines and passengers around the world. This joint venture supports Boeing’s vertical integration strategy to develop in-house capabilities and depth in key areas to offer better products, grow services and generate higher lifecycle value.”

The new company will have its operational headquarters, technology center and initial production plant in Kaiserslautern, Germany, and a customer service center in Seattle, Washington, USA. Aftermarket spare parts distribution will be handled by Boeing subsidiary Aviall.
