Montreal, Canada-based precision engineering company MSB will be making its debut as an exhibitor at this year's Aircraft Interiors Expo being held in Hamburg from 14 - 16 April. This will also be the first time the company showcases its products and services to the aviation fraternity since its merger in November last year with France-based aerospace engineering and contracting company Sogeclair.

MSB will be co-exhibiting with Sogeclair GmbH, the German division of the French company on booth 6B90. Members of the management team will be talking up MSB's precision engineering capabilities and explaining to delegates how its technicians' skill sets add value to the commercial aviation expertise of Sogeclair.

MSB is already well known for the manufacture of Crystal, China and Flatware (CCF) inserts that protect fragile objects. Each insert is made of lightweight, but strong, precision-cut high-density foam that has been fully certified for aviation use. Meticulous attention is given to ensuring the foam is cut to match the contours, surface and shape of the fragile items, in addition to the exact dimensions of the cabinets and drawers where the objects will be stowed so ensuring full protection whilst in motion.

Initially produced for the business aviation sector MSB is now transferring its knowledge to create similar insert products for commercial aircraft. It has already begun creating inserts for the interiors of galley trolleys for upper class and VIP cabins. The business is planning to maximise its presence at Aircraft Interiors by showcasing the insert concept to the commercial aviation market, and explaining how it will convert the expertise to a larger scale for aircraft configured to offer corporate shuttle services.

"We recognize that we have developed a practical but stylish storage solution for business aviation, and following our merger with Sogeclair we can see there are more applications for the technology in the commercial sector. The relationship with Sogeclair gives us an immediate global footprint in this space and enables us to quickly build a network of new clients. Having a presence at AIX is the first step in that direction and we are excited by the possibilities," says Shannon Gill, Business Development Director of MSB. "Our joint presence perfectly exemplifies the value of bringing Sogeclair and MSB together," she adds.
