Weston in driving seat for BE

Weston has signed a multi-million pound long-term agreement with BE Aerospace to provide precision aircraft seat components for its Spectrum product family.


Lancashire-based Weston EU has announced a further multi million pound deal to add to the £100 million record contract it sealed with Rolls-Royce on July 20.



Weston has signed a long-term agreement with aircraft cabin interiors company BE Aerospace to provide precision aircraft seat components for its Spectrum product family.



To fulfil the contract, Weston will make a multi million pound investment in the creation of WestonSEA, a new wholly owned company in Thailand. The initial investment includes 14 multi-axis machining centres in a plant which also features a fully integrated resident material supplier.



Weston said the contract provides a strong platform for further growth in the region and provides BE Aerospace with management, engineering and manufacturing support direct from the UK.
