Production underway at MSB Aerospace’s new facility

The US division of MSB Design, MSB Aerospace, has begun production at a new facility in Savannah, Georgia, USA. The plan is for the 10,000ft² facility to produce as much as 30% of MSB’s North America output in 2018. The company also holds another 60,000ft² of space in the same building, in readiness for expansion.

MSB believes the facility will provide faster turnaround times, a more personalized service and earlier involvement in product development. The company will source nearly all its materials in the USA.

“Our product portfolio, and thus the overall capabilities of the business, has grown as we have reduced potential custom delays, eliminated currency fluctuations and negated import taxes,” said Shannon Gill, managing director, MSB Aerospace. “This adds further value for our clients and allows us to create more bespoke products, as well as redefining our portfolio.”

The facility is staffed by new recruits and long-term employees, and will make the full range of products for US customers. MSB’s products include bespoke CCF stowage inserts, hi-lo tables, PED holders and up-lit glass holders. The facility’s first customer was Gulfstream, for which MSB made inserts and tables.

“Establishing our American presence has not been without its challenges as we had to find the right combination of know-how, attitude and cultural spirit to build out our team,” said Gill. “Our clients expect very high quality, so we had to employ recruits who understood this. So far, the items in process are fulfilling our expectations. We are confident our clients will be happy with the final products.”

MSB is headquartered in Montreal, Canada, and opened its first US office in 2015. It also has a human resources division, MSB Global Resources, in Wichita, Kansas.

“We are still hiring as we have plans to expand our shop to develop new products,” said Gill. “We also want to extend our mechanism development, up our deliveries and improve our production speeds.”
