Qingdao, Shandong – Recaro has opened a further 7000m2 aircraft seating factory here to meet growing demand.
This takes capacity at the plant to 60,000 seats/year. New seats built at the facility will go to customers 'in both the Asia Pacific region and the rest of the world,' said the company. Recaro decided to increase capacity because 'production volume has increased so much that the site rapidly reached its limits in terms of space,' said Irene Tan. Tan is general manager of Recaro Aircraft Seating in the Asia Pacific region.
Recaro broke ground for the facility in July the plant opened on 9 December 2019.
